Goosedub Posted September 3, 2022 Share Posted September 3, 2022 Good morning fam, I have had terrible luck with apistos. I first had a pair of Apistogramma Borellii. They did ok, but I could never get them to spawn. They eventually died when my auto water change system went haywire and killed a big portion of my fish room. I then got a pair of Apistogramma caucatoides orange flash. Within a month, I could no longer find the female, she just vanished. Then I moved the male to one of my community tanks out of my 10 gallon breeder. He died a few days after the transition. I do not know what happened to him. I suspect it was a compatibililty issue. Now I have very hard water approx 150 Gh, Kh is about 40. My Ph is around neutral at 7.0. I now have purchased a trio of apistogramma hongsloi red. I did not put them in the same 10 gallon I had the other 2 pairs of apistos. gave this trio a planted 20 gallon long with only some endlers as dithers. So far they are doing well, but I want to breed them and be successful. Do I need to do RO water for apistos? Everything I have read is they are easy to breed usually. I have had crummy luck. Never had a spawn. I don't want to do RO water if I can avoid it. Has anyone else had luck breeding apisto hongsloi in hard water or do I need to bite the bullet and add the additional work of the RO for myself? Advice appreciated. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
