    Default Which Apisto to get...


    0 Not allowed!
    So need fast opinions here...

    I have a 10g begging for a pair of apisto and my LFS let me know they can get a bunch of types in this week

    They can get:
    Viejita Gold
    Agassizi Fire Red
    Macmasteri Red Tail
    Inconspicua
    Cac Mega Red
    Pandurini Sky Blue

    ^a pair they said would range from $40-60 (waiting on detailed pricing)

    Or I could just wait for the Hongsloi ii (TWS has them for $60 a pair + shipping), so almost $100 for a pair... which hurts a bit...

    Thoughts?

    Get the Viejita Gold or Pandurini Sky Blue, only because there seems to be so many red choices, LOL.

    I got a pair of apisto cacatuoides just a week ago, on Sunday. During the week I found eggs and yesterday (Sunday), there was a swarm of fry swimming around the female. She and the male have been fending off the other inhabitants so far - pair of GBR, several male guppies and a few pygmy cories. It's a sight to see the fry swarming but I'm not sure how long they will last. Love these guys so far.

    I have owned Viejita's, cool little fish. Pandurini's are cool but not much color. They all have pretty much the same behavior, just depends if you want more common fish with nicer color or something more rare with a plainer color. In any case I can't imagine keeping them in a 10g, it's enough space but it's really hard keeping water stable in a 10 and Apisto's need incredibly stable water, like discus stable. I don't think I could have kept mine alive in a 10, I lost a few getting competent at keeping em in a 29 lol.

    I have had my borelli going for a month or so in the 10g, if the female wasn't such a mean one I may have had eggs by now, but I believe they may be a little young still

    I actually have been talking with Jeff from aquaticclarity.com (sells apistos) and I love the baenschi that he sells, but its his recommendation that the female of that type is too aggressive for a 10g to work
