Apistograma agassizi are wonderful little cichlids, rich in color and personality. This particular Apisto, the Double Red, features some brilliant red to orange finnage with black markings throughout the fins. The body is silvery-gold with iridescent blue scales and a definite dark strip running through the midline. They have distinct black markings on their face, a yellow under-belly, and elongated pectoral fins. The female appears more solid yellow-gold with red tips on her fins and a black spot right in the middle of her body.

This dwarf cichlid is usually peaceful unless it is in the spawning mood. They prefer a tank with plenty of plant cover, as well as a few nice caves or other hiding areas. They stay to the bottom of the tank, so choose other bottom-dwelling tankmates wisely. To breed these fun fish, stay to the lower end of the recommended pH scale and up the temperature. Feed rich meaty foods such as bloodworms and frozen brine shrimp. As a regular diet, they should be ok on small pellets or flake, as well. If you want to keep more than one, keep either a pair, or one male to a few females.
