Macmaster's Dwarf CichlidApistogramma macmasteri
As with many other dwarf cichlids, the Macmaster's Dwarf Cichlid exhibits highly appealing patterning and colour that makes it an attractive fish for the aquarist. Although males can be territorial and both males and females are aggressive whilst breeding, in general the fish are peaceful and can be kept in a community without timid fish. Keep pairs or more females than males in aquariums with a sandy or fine bottom and plenty of hiding spots amongst caves, wood, and plants. Soft to medium water only.
