Description

For fans of dwarf cichlids looking for a fish that is colorful, full of energy and attitude and is yet still hardy, unfussy and easy to keep, these Triple Yellow Flash Apistogramma cacatuoides will certainly fit the bill. In fact out of all of the Apistogramma species, this one has probably been kept longer in the hobby than any other. Because of this, they are very well adapted to a whole host of water conditions and parameters. These "triple yellow flash" fish are called that because they've been selectively bred to have very bright yellow dorsal, anal and caudal fins. Unlike the ”triple red” variant, these fish do not have finnage that is flecked with mottled bits of black coloration. Their fins take on the appearance of yellow flames when they are moving about your aquarium searching for food and adventure.

Males are much larger and more colorful than are the females, and males also tend to 'flare up' and act tough towards one another. Sometimes there can be scuffles, so it is best to place these fish in an aquarium that will give them some room to move around and stake claims to their territories. It is also very important to keep these fish in a setting filled with rocks and plants to break up line of sight; breaking up line of sight in fish species often helps to keep down aggression and fighting.

These are very easy to keep and breed fish, and they lay large clutches of eggs given good food and a cave to retreat to. Born and bred in Europe, these fish make excellent centerpiece fish but they won't at all stress your wallet when doing so! These dwarf cichlids ship individually bagged, one fish per bag, and we recommend always getting a pair so that your fish have company and happiness!
