Description

The Apistogramma cacatuoides, also known as the Cockatoo Cichlid, is a small, colorful freshwater fish native to the Amazon River basin in South America. With its vibrant hues and striking patterns, this species is highly sought after by aquarists for its captivating appearance and engaging behavior. The males of this species exhibit vibrant colors, including shades of yellow, orange, and red, with striking elongated dorsal fins that resemble a cockatoo's crest, hence its common name.

Known for their territorial behavior, these cichlids thrive in well-planted aquariums with plenty of hiding spots and gentle water flow. They are best suited to community tanks with similarly sized, peaceful tank mates. Their playful nature and intricate coloration make them a delightful addition to any aquarist's collection, offering an engaging and visually appealing focal point in a well-maintained aquarium.
