    Sexing and species of apisto

    I am wondering whether this fish is male or female. I've named them Chopstick due to their pectoral fins being a creme colour with two pale dark lines through them, like a set of chopsticks. Chopstick has some blue markings on their face and an extremely thin orange band on the very top of...

    Apistogramma with rams?

    Does anyone know the ability of apistos and rams in the same tank, 30gallon long. Heavily decorated, hardly space to see from one side to the other. Planing to make it more dense, and plenty of caves (from ground to top of water). The tree in the centre is flush side to side, and top to...

    Apistogramma Agassizii male or female?

    I am wondering whether this fish is male or female. They are around an inch in length, and I believe I've seen them colour yellow at points; however, I don't have an image of this. They have a faint black line through her tail fin; however, they also have black on their ventral fin. On their...

    Apistogramma Cacatouides and African Dwarf Frogs??

    I have a standard 55-gallon aquarium (48" x 13" x 21") kept at about 78 degrees F. The tank gets water changes once a week at 50% and is very heavily planted and over-filtered. I would really like to add a pair of Apistogramma cacatouides, as I've wanted them for over a year now and would like...

    Christmas Stocking Craziness - please help!

    Had to leave the forum for a week or two... but I am back! And with plenty of questions ;) I'm very fortunate to have friends and family that support this hobby, although none of them seem to really understand it. That became apparent this Christmas when a few decided to buy me fish unaware of...

    Mountain horned lizard kept with tropical fish?

    Hello everyone, I am currently building a paludarium in an exo terra (90cm tall x 60cm wide x 45cm deep) and the land area will tank up just under half of the aquarium section at the bottom. I am hoping to keep a mountain horned dragon in here as there will be plenty of space for him higher up...

    Fish cut in half but seems fine??

    Hi all! I have a group of baby honduran red points that are growing up. Earlier this month the smallest of them showed a lot of damage to her tail, it was basically gone, so I removed her from her siblings into my least aggressive tank. Never saw her again and I believe she died and was eaten...

    Using De-ionized Water to Lower pH

    Hello, I've been looking into keeping Apistogrammas however my local tap water has a high pH and is relatively hard. I understand Apistos prefer softer, acidic water so thought that I could achieve this by mixing my tap water and de-ionized water in a set ratio to reach a desired pH. I take A...

    stocking 45L tank

    Hi guys, so my 45L tank had been housing a dwarf gourami, but sadly he died this week. I have three purple harlequin rasbora in there at the mo (originally 6), and am trying to decide how to restock it. (I can move the rasbora if need be depending on what I go for, or rebuild the shoal) My...
