My Beautful Female Apisto Cac. (56k beware)

Well here she is. I think she is more beautiful then the males even though she is yellow and black.

Here she is my favorite fish ever!!!

Peace,
Ry

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

Not really my kind of thing, but still, a very nice specimen. Well done!

gorgeous! I have a female inka50 that really needs a guy! And a borelli female leading around a school of fry. She's pretty and yellow but doesn't get the black markings on her.

As this fish has gotton older in the past month, she has turned more and more yellow and those black stripes, one down her body and one on her eye has gotton so pronounced. I thought my females were realy dull when I got them, but this one's yellow and black has made it so unique to me. She is half the size of the alpha male and wont hesitate to kick his A$$.

When I judge a fish, I think color is the last of what I look at. I think its the arangement of design, shape, then color. When I look at this female the design of her markings is apealing to me. Her dorsal fin is all yellow, then at the tip of it by her head its black. Then her pectoral fins are all black but the tips are yellow. They are the invese of one another. The lateral line is so perfect with no brakes in it from head to tail. The lateral stripe runs right into her eye and 2 more stripes come out at equal angles to form kind of an arrow. Man I love this fish. My angels are by far more colorful but no where near as perfect in design.

Peace,
Ry

something about the apistogrammas has always caught my eye. I think they're gorgeous fish and have such attitude. I'd like to have several more types of them. course I need more tanks first.
