Apistogramma eunotus is a small, peaceful dwarf cichlid from slow-moving rivers and streams in Peru. It was very popular when first imported but its popularity declined as more species’ were brought onto the market. I still think it’s one of the prettiest.
Best kept in a species tank as a pair, or with some small pencilfish or possibly ember tetras and others of a similar size and peaceful nature.
Housing and Feeding
House in a planted tank with bogwood/leaves for tannins and some small caves, and only gentle flow from the filter.
Feeding is easy as commercial foods will be taken, although they prefer live/frozen alternatives.
Apistogramma eunotus will spawn in cracks and crevices formed by decor or in a cave. The male can become extremely aggressive towards the male after spawning and in a small tank, he may have to be removed for his own safety.
