If the paucisquamis is my favorite Apisto, then my pertensis is a close second.
I also caught gibbiceps and T. candidi but have no photos of them before my aquariums.
Here are some fish that were collected in the same habitat…

 

Mesonauta sp.

The adult Mesonauta insignis was a beautiful surprize…

But i must admit the Acarichthys heckelli was even nicer.
