Apistogramma Agassizii "Double Red" 3.5cm

Description

The Apistogramma Agassizii "Double Red" is a type of dwarf cichlid, which falls under the subcategory of Cichlids. These fish are known for their vibrant red coloration and are popular among aquarists for their striking appearance and interesting behavior.

  1. Temperature: They prefer a water temperature range of about 75 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit (24 to 29 degrees Celsius).
  2. Minimum Size Tank: A minimum tank size of 20 gallons is recommended for a pair of Apistogramma Agassizii. A larger tank is always beneficial as it provides more space for the fish to explore and reduces territorial aggression.

Feeding Habits: In the wild, Apistogramma Agassizii "Double Red" primarily feed on small insects, larvae, and crustaceans. In captivity, they should be fed a varied diet that includes high-quality flakes, pellets, and frozen or live foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and daphnia. Providing a diverse diet helps ensure they receive all the necessary nutrients for good health and vibrant coloration.

Habitat Preference: These fish prefer densely planted aquariums with plenty of hiding places such as driftwood, rocks, and caves. The addition of live plants not only provides hiding spots but also helps maintain water quality. They also appreciate a soft, sandy substrate.

Water pH Level: Apistogramma Agassizii "Double Red" prefers slightly acidic water with a pH level ranging from 6.0 to 7.0.

Behavior: They are known to be territorial, especially during breeding. Males can be aggressive towards each other, so it's recommended to keep them in larger tanks with plenty of hiding places and territories. They are generally peaceful with other non-aggressive fish species.

Apistogramma Agassizii "Double Red" are not schooling fish. They are best kept in pairs or in a harem consisting of one male and multiple females. Keeping multiple males in the same tank can lead to aggression and territorial behavior.

It's important to maintain good water quality and provide a well-balanced diet to ensure the health and well-being of Apistogramma Agassizii "Double Red." Regular water changes, appropriate tank mates, and a suitable environment are crucial for their overall health and happiness.
