Any apisto breeders in NJ?

They are seriously hard to find, ideally I'm looking for pairs, shipping is expensive...

Shipping is and can be expensive but Iíve found the extra cost is worth it when getting them from a quality source. I order all my Apistogramma now because I want the not often seen varieties.

Check out Jeff with Aquaticclarity

I also believe @Zapins breeds Cacatuodies.

Just a noob

coralbandit on here breeds, sells, and ships a few different Apisto species. At very reasonable prices . He is located in NY so they wont have to travel far .

Fish Hut of New Jersey has a nice section of Apistos..they are currently out of most at the moment due to their recent anniversary sale (I picked up a pair of Ortegais) Any specific ones you are looking for?

Give them a call last time I check they did have pairs (They had Cacatuoides, agassizii, and viejita from what I remembered). Males are as usual always the first to sell.
They did tell me they are getting a new apisto shipment in two weeks.

You're welcome! Hope you find what you're looking for. I am currently waiting for them to get some Macmasteri and Hongsloi in.

Here's the Male Ortegai I picked up from them, slowly coloring up

Aquarium Center in South Jersey always carries a couple species of Apisto. The best place and choices are to buy Apisto through hobbyists auctions in fish clubs held Semi annually in spring and fall in Jersey.
