Fire Red Agassizi Dwarf Cichlid

The Fire Red Agassizi Dwarf Cichlid (Apistogramma cf. agassizii) is a brilliantly colored fish with bright red fins and a body that shimmers in gold and pink. Males are especially stunning, showcasing a lot of red on their fins and vibrant yellow and pink across their bodies. Females, while less colorful, are still more vibrant than many other dwarf cichlid species.

These fish do best in tanks with a sandy substrate and plenty of hiding places like clay pots, driftwood, and rock formations. They are well-suited for planted aquariums but also need some open space to swim. Generally peaceful, they can live with other non-aggressive fish as long as they have enough room. They can become territorial during spawning, so it's best not to keep them with small, delicate invertebrates. Larger shrimp and snails might be suitable companions in a large enough tank. If breeding, it's advisable to limit or avoid other species in the tank.

Feeding the Fire Red Agassizi Dwarf Cichlid is easy as they are not fussy eaters. They will eat high-quality dry, frozen, and live meaty foods. Providing a varied diet is key to maintaining their health and vivid colors.

We offer mature, sexed specimens of this beautiful species, showing off their excellent coloration.
