Steindachner's Dwarf CichlidApistogramma steindachneri
These dwarf cichlids are peaceful but will hold territories along the lower regions of the aquarium and become aggressive during spawning. One male can be kept with several females, where each female has her own territory. Two males should only be kept in large aquariums. The aquarium should have hiding spots, darker areas, and plenty of vegetation. Good water quality and a varied diet is essential for good health. Soft acidic water is preferable.
