    Cross breeding of Cacatuoides?

    Hi all, I feel like the answer may be yes, but thought I’d ask those with more knowledge and experience. Will cacatuoides of different colour variations cross breed? ie a double red with a super orange? Thanks in advance

    Wild cacatuodies?

    Greetings from Turkey, I bought a couple of wild cacatuodies a few weeks ago but I suspect they are juruensis. I would be glad if you can help me. I also saw the female with fry today and her color did not turn yellow. Thanks.

    Fin “blister” growths on cacatuoides

    Hi all - I’ve had this orange flash for about 1 year and recently he’s developed some pigmented spots on his fins that almost look like blisters. I got some reasonable shots attached and would emphasize they have a bubble-like texture. They are on every fin except pectoral and pelvic, but most...

    Sexing and species of fish (revisited)

The next two are my two newest, sold...

    Rescaping 30gallon long

    I am doing one last order before doing a large rescape on my apisto tank of dimensions 100cmX30cmX40cm. What are things that you would say are a must-have for Apistogramma? Or something that you prefer to have for yours? (I am also working the tank towards blackwater (where it is the darker...

    Strange behavior… Questioning if I have M/F

    Hey there everyone. About a month ago I purchased two young apistogramma cacatuoides from a LFS. I was told that the larger, more colorful one was the male and the smaller one with the yellow belly was the female. Now, I’m beginning to question if this is true. I believe I may have two males...

    Are these still juveniles? When will they be sexually mature?

    Hi I’m new to Apistos, I’ve had these Cacatuoides for a couple of weeks now. I’m pretty sure it’s a male and female but I’m just wondering if they’re still juveniles. How long does it take for them to become mature? Has anyone got any tips for them?

    Hello! I've had this pair of apisto cacatuoides for about 8 months now and they were sold as a pair. But they have never bred and only showed some occasional flashing. The male follows the female around a lot but doesn't show aggression/chase her too hard. I was wondering if the female is...

    Not sure what they are doing

    TLDR: I would like to know the sex of these three for sure and what this tail flick/ biting behavior is. Is it territorial fighting or mating behavior? Background I should say from the start that this is my first go at apistos but I have housed other cichlids, as well as all the 'starter' fish...

    Male or Female? The age old cacatuoides question.

    Hi everyone! Sorry my first post here is asking for sexing help. I appreciate any advice you can give. I ordered a pair of A. cacatuoides Triple Red from a breeder online in hopes of breeding them myself. They were listed as young juveniles, so I expect they have some more developing to do and...
