Looking for confirmation on an I.D for this paor of Apisto's and sexing. Were sold to me as Apisto Viejita "Red Neck" and as a male female pair. My first foray into Apisto's and cichlids in general.

Looks like macmasteri. Fair to say that most fish with the "red neck" label attached will be macmasteri. A. viejita are only sold by a few hobbyists in the US, and I doubt they are available in Australia considering the import laws. Looks like a pair to me.

Sweet, that was what I thought as well after doing some digging around. Much prefer having the correct names on the fish I keep.

And also good to know they look like a pair, the girl has been colouring up a fair bit the last couple of days and chasing the boy a little, so was a little worried I may have gotten 2 males
