Apistogramma tucurui
Yellow Head Apistogramma
Apistogramma tucurui, like many of the cichlid family, is noted for its colourful appearance. It has a golden head and several spots and stripes that originate in the head region and extend over the entire body. The posterior side of the Apistogramma tucurui’s body is of a turquoise colour, as is its anal and dorsal fin. This species, unlike other Apistogrammas, has up to seven black stripes in the head area and as many as nine stripes along its flank.
