Like in people, color morphs are just color, they are the same species. Use whichever color you prefer - and expect variations in the offspring, just like in the wild.

I think Apitogramma Allpahuayo is look smarter than Cacatuoides the body is so strong and dorsal fin is very high.

Wild specimens of A. cacatuoides have as robust or even more robust bodies and the dorsal spines are just as high as on A. alpahuayo. Most hobbyist have only seen domestic color strains of A. cacatuoides. Sadly, body shape and finnage have been sacrificed for color.

Hallo,
I am Hanzle from Holland and keep apistoos for 40 years. Had my own aquarium shop from 1984 till 1988. Always s great fan from apistoos and hyphessobrycon which is s great combination in a Community Aquarium. Perhaps.....in the near future I start breeding apistoos again. Have a 400 liters Community aquarium for hyphessobrycon wadai and apistogramma biteaniata.
I want to get a 55 gallon slightly planted tank with many caves and I am thinking of getting 2 electric blue acaras, 3 blue rams, a apistogramma, 3 angelfish, and some corrydoras. Will that work if I keep the temperature at about and 80 or less?
I have kept fish for quite a long time but never cichlids. I want to find out more about them.
Hi
my Hongsloi, keep eating their eggs, any help greatly appreciated

Hi Fred, do you have any apistos for sale? I'm looking for Apistogramma trifasciata. I'm about an hour and a half from Mtl.
