So glad you posted these, they're all beautiful! Thinking of redoing my 40b after the holidays with Apisto's. Wasn't sure which ones yet.
I have to do a bit more research. I did have Kribs a while back and they bred a few times.

Sadly no, the male came down with something and didn't last long after that. When that happend I moved the female to a friends tank that had a lonely male. Haven't really had the opportunity to get another pair but is really don't need to with the fry I have. I've been raising them for months but they just grow sooooo slow.

That's a stunning male you have there. Wish I could get some better photos but I'm not so hot with a camera.

Heres an old shot of a triple red cacatauoides that I unfortunately lost a few months ago.

Love these guys, they maybe the best Apistos when it comes to character. I can't wait until these fry grow out so I can have a pair in my 40. Also feel the pain, my male Fire Red has dropsy and I don't think he's going to make it.

How old would you say that fish is? I bought what was supposed to be some triple reds a while back from someone who is reputable in the hobby. But what I got were essentially fry and not juveniles and now a few months later I'm really doubting they're triple reds.

I'd say they're about 6 months old now. For whatever reason they grow really slow but I think it had to do with me not being able to transition them over to flake food. Within the past month their growth has exploded as I have them on freeze dried blood worms.

Just found this thread! I love apistos as well! Am raising a spawn of the cacatuides triple red as well, and thought it was just me that they grow so slow. Mine are 5 months old and starting to get their color.
Also have 7 young borelli hoping to breed soon and a pair of fire reds that will not do anything for me.
