    Having 4 fugitives from Germany (my son mobed house) in one of my tanks.

    They are the nicest dwarf cichlids I know.
    Think I've 3 males and a female (which had an eye-issue grrrrr).

    Maybe I should try to breed them.

    It was the curviceps I read about. Doesn't look like they eat plants either! (Despite what I read). I read they were very popular at one time, but since aquarists started keeping plants in the aquarium, they fell out of favor. Well if they don't eat or mess with them, I don't get how they are not more popular?

    Too friendly hahaha! The tank with the curviceps had mostly moss, so you never know, they might still mess with them. I'll be looking into them though. That and the EB acara grabs my attention.

    Smiling acara or curviceps (Laetacara curviceps). This cichlid is plant-safe, except for small plants. Like the severums it doesn’t read books, so it doesn’t know that the crowns of Cryptocoryne, val, and Amazon swordplants are supposed to stay above the substrate. My pair is constantly remodeling the floor of their tank, moving sand here and there and burying all the small plants
    Maybe it was they are always compatible with planted tanks. I wonder if they would remodel gravel substrates...

    Possibly the EB acara also likes to remodel.

    Well I like them a lot. Apistogramma is beautiful and so many varieties, but I'll be looking for these guys.

    I'm glad you like them, they are little charmers and very hardy ;-)
