Hi everyone, I'm a long time arachnid and reptile keeper just reintroducing myself to keeping fish. I'm sure there's been plenty of changes in the 20+ years since having fish.

I just recently discovered Apistogramma species and did months of research, including lurking here, before getting my first yesterday. I've been told it's a male Apistogramma cacatuoides orange flash. Including a picture of him.

I'm here to learn and give my new friend the best life possible.

Got the sand, claims it doesn't need to be washed but I'm going to anyway.

Sadly, the cacatuoides has died. This morning the c02 system wasn't working for me so I left it off. My SO offered to help after I left for work. She said she got it going but when I came home he was dead and floating. I saw a heavy stream of bubbles coming from the diffuser and turned off the c02, it turned about 2.5 times more than what I keep it at.

I'm trying not to be angry/heartbroken over this...

Anyway, I appreciate the recommendation for the sand.
