My beloved apaches... I fell in love with them the moment I laid eyes on the first ones. Keeping the line going, and creating a ST version, as well as improving finnage have been the goals of the last 6 years. A couple times, I almost lost the line :(. But today it is going stronger than ever, more beautiful than ever and yes, in ST version as well as DT. The ideal Apache male has a red/white BF pattern and a piebald face with bright red body and remain (to me) a DT. "Geronimo" the famous Apache male pictured above was such a male. Apaches are very special and that is why so many people have fallen in love with them all over the globe. Because of this they remain hard to get because they sell fast. The piebald BF specimen (rare) especially. Apaches can be solid red, red BF without piebald, or even red with marbled fins (pretty!). I even got an orange apache once :), as this line, way back then, did come from an experimental outcross of orange back into red marble. Apache DTs usually have exquisite, large, even lobes and are beautiful. They also have great personality. Females are exceptionally nice, with great DT lobes (very wide), and very clean color. On occasion some males may be cambodians and not very red in the body. They get redder as they mature.

WARNING! Some people out there have been selling so called "Apaches" that were NOT Apaches. Hence my current restriction on using my lines name. Do not purchase these fish if you want Apaches. Apache features can easily be lost unless line is kept pure, so Apache genos may never produce good Apaches. Want real Apaches? Buy them here.
