    Well, if these breed, you might just have that opportunity...

    I'll take you up on that offer. :D
    I currently have Agassizi's Double Reds, Trifaciatus and Red Cacatuoides.

    It looks like the Agassizi's may finally have gotten it right after plenty of eating of eggs - crossing my fingers that I'll soon see little ones coming out of the caves :)

    I'll keep you guys updated on the breeding of my apistos. The A. trifasciata are going slowly. They not showing too much breeding behaviour yet. We'll see about the Hongsloi. The females always seem to kill the males.

    Are Dwarf cichlids good community tank mates? Or do they prefer different perameters?

    Depends what your parameters are... If you have a south american soft water tank, then yes, they are pretty good tank mates.

    Some of the new arrivals!!! Very exciting shipment from Quality Aquariums.

    I have a female, but the pics were blurry.

    This one is a male A. cacatuoides that I bred. He is the first adult cacatuoides I ever raised.

    With QA's shipment I also got A. agassizi (tefe blue), A. sp Inka 50 ( I got 2 pairs of these). There are some beautiful strains available out there. I wish I had a bigger room with more tanks.
