"Hello people. I currently have a pair of apistogramma cacatuoides, aka cockatoo dwarf cichlids, in a 40 ltr aquarium with lots of silk plants and caves made from bogwood and fake logs. They live with 5 tiger barbs, 1 bristle nose catfish, and 1 whiptail catfish. They are a peaceful species who never bother the catfish but don't tolerate the barbs getting to close to the gravel, otherwise they never bother them. Mostly it's the male chasing the barbs but doesn't nibble them. I feed them-flakes, frozen bloodworms, and 5mm sinklng pellets from new life brand called spectrum grow, it's not cheap. I've had them for 2 months now and their colours have changed since I got them, especially the male. No signs of breeding yet. Just the male chasing the female from time to time when he finds her. Like I said, lots of plants. My tank is slightly acidy and temps. around 26c. I highly recommend them for anyone who doesn't have a big aquarium but wants some personality in their tank. Best of luck and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do."
