Apistos in a 55 gallon tank


Recommended Posts

I had two male and one female A. cacatuoides in a moderately planted 55 gallon community tank. One of the males was a sneaker female at the LFS, I think; I thought I was getting a 1M:2F trio. The female and the more dominant male were really harassing and beating up the other male, who we ended up rescuing out to an empty 10 gallon. If we hadn't, I'm sure they would have killed him, even if just from the stress of the harassment.

With more males and more females? It might work, but you should have a Plan B, just in case, especially when/if they start spawning.

@anewbie Any thoughts here? I don't know A. trifasciata at all.
