Apistogramma – Orange Flash Dwarf Cockatoo Cichlid



“Orange Flash” Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid

Apistogramma Cacatuoides,

Your aquarium can become a sea of colors as schools of Dwarf Cacatuoides swim around. They are extremely peaceful fish, who do not eat aquarium plants, and are great for almost any community aquarium. At full grown males can be up to 3.5”, while the females tend to get no larger than 2.4.” These fish are most content living in large schools or colonies, rather than on their own.

Dwarf Cacatuoides are a beautiful sight in Triple Red color, although they can be found in Double Reds, Triple Reds, and Orange Flash colors, as well. It can be difficult to breed this fish because the females need a group of males to choose from; they should not be paired any other way.

To keep your aquarium comfortable for Dwarf fish, please abide by these requirements:

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

We’ve found that using New Life Spectrum Ultra Red fish food will greatly enhance and improve the color on these fish significantly, naturally without hormones. See Related Items below to add to your order now!
