    I have matured 40g planted tank. Had Apisto pair and they were breeding hatched many frys and all was going well. One day the male died... I'm not sure why, the water was consistent at all times and feeding as usual. Maybe he was too old? and near end of his lifespan? no idea but the male died...

    So I was away for a couple of days and when I came back my apisto had died. All other inhabitants in this 12 gallon tank were fine. So what I did was that I took him out, I did a water change, normal maintenance - cleaning the gravel/substrate and so on. I also used my test kits for NO2 and NO3...

    This tank has been in the planning stages for almost a year. I have been slowly acquiring the necessary items and think I've finally got what I need. The biggest thing that has changed is the tank size. All of my planning has been for a 40 gallon breeder, but yesterday got the opportunity to...

    Hello! I recently added a hydor 350 to my 20 long( it was on sale for less than the 250), and it seems the flow is super strong! This led me to a number of questions....... Is it too much flow? How much can I turn down the flow valves on the intake/outtake tubes before I cause long term damage...
  11. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    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...

    I have been looking for this fish for a while now, they are one of my favorite Apisto's. Only could find them through Wetspot but they are $30 each plus shipping which if you next day it is around $70 more or less, so that has slowed me down until I found a C.A.F.E. member from the Ohio fish...

    A few weeks ago, my female apistogramma cacatuoides turned bright yellow and started defending a small area of my 29 gallon tank. I figured it had just laid some nice eggs but I couldn't see it because of the angle. The next day, she no longer defended the area, I just assumed she wanted...
