The borelii are juvis, they would need some time to breed....
Bappada's apistos are with him only..... I go once or twice a week to see if everything is ok with his tanks.....:)

@Platinum : Awesome pics.. Sorry for digging up an old thread, but I think you have Apisto Vijeita and not Macmestri. Clear red band on dorsal and caudal extensions are not present in Macmestri i guess.. Do correct me if i am wrong..

Thanks mate.

The one in the pic is undoubetdly Apsitogramma macmasteri (farm bred).
It has caudal fin extensions means its is not Vijeita, the red bands and the dark red on the upper body is due to selective breeding on farms (It is not found on WC specimens).

True Vijeita are very very rare in the hobby. Apsito keepers across the gobe can vouch for that. Almost all the so called Vijeitas in the hobby are sourced from commercial fish farms from Thailand and even Germany. They actually are Macmestri but are sold under the name of Viejita by many.
