Well I am sure I am not the only one that has done this or will be the last, I have decided to really get into Apisto's. My sun / fish room is 163 sqft. and looking at the way I have my tanks set up there is wasted space so decided to take some measurements and now w / o making the room any smaller and just use existing locations I am going to build some racks the goal is to have 30 tanks. Its not going to happen right away but as I build and move tanks the room will look less cluttered. Granted it may not be the ideal set-up but where there is a will there is a way. I will make it happen. I admit it I am nuts!!!

Only thing that stinks and I am sure you remember as well back in the late 60's and into the 70's you could buy tanks 55 and under 50 cents a gallon over a 55 one dollar a gallon. I was a teenager and my dad and I went to the LFS and bought a 125 for 125.00 boy dont I wish the prices were that cheap now!!

It depends on how you look at it, being on disability funds are tight. Sure if you go by inflation it does not look that bad. You do have to admit years ago you could purchase big tanks fairly cheap now it you want a big tank it will cost you a few dollars. By the way not complaining just my point of view.

I'm clueless. If I say something you can safely ignore it.

I see that The Wet Spot Tropical Fish currently has the fire red A. agassizi you are looking for. Here is the link:
I've always had good experiences buying from them on line.
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.
