The name 'panda' comes from the unusual markings of the females of this species, which have black 'blotches' around the eye and parts of the fins. The fish is only occasionally available for sale, being rarely bred in captivity. Behaviour is similar to other Apistogramma species, being peaceful but territorial, and suitable for a community of robust fishes. The aquarium should have a sandy or fine gravel bottom, hiding spots including caves, and vegetation. The fish seems to only do well in soft, acidic water. Not a beginners fish, but an interesting fish to keep.
