  1. Came across some hongsloi in my LFS and I'm instantly hooked.Need to know all about them.Currently my plan is to keep a group of 4-5 but I'm not sure how males will fare with each other. Another option is to pair them up with some bolivian rams.Tank size hasn't been decided yet but they'll be temporarily stored in a 40 gallon and I'll be open to anything under 90 gallons for their next tank as it will be a planted community tank with them as the centerpiece.However, I'm having trouble planning out the rest of the tank. I'm hearing mixed reports of temperature such as keeping them 80+ as thats the "natural temp" or around 75 to lengthen their lifespan. Because I want other fish that would thrive at their temperature, I have been at a roadblock in this regard. I think they only live in a restricted area in the wild so I'm not sure if there are schooling fish they are sympatric with.Also, I'd assume I can't do bottom feeders. This is primarily a community tank and I have smaller tanks for rearing fry, but when they get their breeding aggression, I've read they will poke eyes out of cories so I don't think cories + apisto will be doable. Are there any bottom feeders that are doable?
  2. To sum it up, last week I picked up two apistogramma hongsloi. These are my first species of apisto. They’ve been doing well and eating well. The last few days I’ve noticed minor chasing and the male seeming to “dance” or “show off” for the female. Last night I noticed a weird gold patch on the head of the male. Today I noticed an even bigger one on the female. Gh is 8, Kh is 5 and has been steady for several months. Temp is 74 Fahrenheit. I have really high nitrates because I ended up overdosing easy green trying to clean out the pump head and get it to work. Is the high nitrates causing the issue? Wednesday’s are my normal water change days so it’ll get a water change regardless tomorrow, should I wait and see? They’re still acting normal and eating. The intake sponge on my HOB filter was clogged to the point where there was little water flow, but I also have a sponge filter on the other side of the tank. It’s a planted 20 long with 6 celestial pearl danios, 7 habrosus corydoras, the 2 apistos, and a blue stiphodon goby. Nobody else seems to be affected or acting different.
  3. Hi! I have a few questions regarding apistogramma exhibiting breeding behavior. My female is very protective over one of the catappa leaves in the tank and keeps luring the male in with her. She will clean the leaf and move sand off of it and it seems like they're going through the motions of breeding. My question is should i be expecting them to actually spawn or is it likely that they won't produce any offspring for a while. I am trying to get some worm cultures for my other fish but i do have frozen cuclops and frozen baby brine shrimp. I just want to be prepared in case they do end up making some fry. My other question is will i have to remove the male? I do have a community tank he can go in if need be.
