Apistogramma - Dwarf Borellii Cichlid



A. aequipinnis, A. ritense, Apistogramma borellii, Apistogramma reitzigi, Heterogrammas borellii, Yellow Dwarf Cichlid

Schools of these beautiful fish are a sight to see! Dwarf Cichlids are extremely peaceful fish, who will not eat your plants, and are great for almost any community aquarium. Although you can buy them as a single fish, they do best in schools or colonies. At full grown males can be up to 3.5”, while the females tend to get no larger than 2.4.”

With our selective breeding, Dwarf Cichlid’s can be found in Double Reds, Triple Reds, and Orange Flash varieties. If you would like to breed your own Dwarf fish, you need to purchase a school of fish because the females need a group of males to choose from; they cannot be paired any other way.

Tips on how to keep your aquarium comfortable for Dwarf Borellii Cichlid fish include:

• dH 2-10°
• pH 5.7-7 (6.4 is ideal)
• Temp: 73-82° F
• Chemicals: Black Water Expert (found at Aquarium Chemicals)
• Recommended Food: New Life Spectrum “Cichlid Formula” (found at Fish Foods)
