5 in stock


Offering Apistogramma cacatoides (Double Red Cockatoo Cichlid).

Inhabiting slow moving waters, the cockatoo cichlid is famous for its striking fiery dorsal fin and intense beauty growing to approximately 2 – 3 inches. It is typically unfussy with housing, however natural substrates, vegetation and ornamentation do well to provide it security and shelter bringing out best colouration and behaviours. Aim to feed a balanced diet, with an emphasis on frozen and live foods to enhance colourations. In blackwater conditions with shaded areas, the colours of this fish truly shine making for magnificent aquarium centrepieces. If raising with other fish, stick to small dither fish only other larger, active fish are likely to disrupt the cockatoo.
