Apistogramma ‘Inka 50’ (Apistogramma baenschi)


A colorful and attractively patterned Apistogramma, the “Inka 50” , “High Fin Nijssenni”, or A188 is found in small forest pools and shallow reaches of flooded forest along the Huallaga River Drainage in Peru. A hardy and relatively peaceful species, they are ideal for smaller aquariums and do best with ample cover in the form of plants, driftwood, and small caves.

Note on wild-collected Apistogramma sp.:
While we will make our best efforts to select male/female pairs for customer orders, sexing small- and medium-sized wild Apistogramma is not always exact and we do not guarantee a particular sex ratio. We recommend buying these fish in larger groups if a particular ratio of males to females is desired.
