    Here are a few pics of my new Apistogramma Hongslei. The pics are poor but I think they show the magnificence of the fish. They are set up in a 20g long at 78 degrees and a pH of 5.5, I hope to breed them so they are staying in a species tank. I just can't get over them.

    Hope you enjoy the poor quality pics

    I like the first pic. Its got that little flare of red on both sides.


    5.5? How do you keep the pH that low?
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

    I use 1/2 tap water and 1/2 RO water plus I have peat in the filter and Driftwood. My tap water is very soft to begin with, KH = 2 GH = 6.
    I wish that first pic came out clear, it would have been amazing.

    Ahhhhhhh someone with my fave fish

    I am so in love with Apistogramma's - they are amazing - Hongsloi's are beautiful and you shouldn't have too much trouble breeding them at all... just feed them well and the rest will take care of itself...

    Have you got some caves etc. set up for them?

    Edit: I just took another look at the foto's (can't get enough of Apisto's) and thought - 'hey Hongloi's don't have red in their tail fins..???' I believe looking closer at them that they are Apistogramma Macmasteri - just as beautiful if not even more ;) ;) They don't need that low a PH though.... check out foto's online - it is difficult to tell from these pics plus they won't show their proper colors til settled - let us know xxxxxx

    Plants are great for them. Java Fern and moss is what I'm using now. You need to have caves for the female to claim a territory. She needs to be able to hide from the male. As far as substrate, a very fine pea gravel or sand works well. You don't need much, just enough to cover the bottom.
