I recently bought an assorted Apistogramma and it arrived nice and healthy but I don’t know what it is. It is very pretty and I want to know the Id so I can buy some females and breed him.

I reckon a borelli x agassizi

Never buy fish from the assorted tank unless you can positively identify them. There are enough hybrids out there and many are rubbish that should not be kept. There's no need to encourage the production of them by purchasing unidentifiable fish from fish farms that like to play god.

There's a few fish farms in Florida that play god and regularly create new fish by hybridising true species.

Do you think it could possibly be Apistogramma Agassizii Alenquer? He is kind of stressed and just started eating and coming out of the tank.ive noticed he has somewhat long fins.

The reason I bought it was because I thought it was Agassizii Alenquer but I just want to confirm

the body is the wrong shape for agassizzi, which are much narrower fish than borelli.

you can ask the shop where they got it from and if they can confirm the identity of it.
