The Agassiz's Dwarf Cichlid (Apistogramma agassizii) is a small colorful fish. The males are larger, growing to 3 1/2 inches or so (8.9 cm) in length while females only reach about 2 - 2 1/2 inches (6 cm). They can live up to about 5 years.  The Agassizi Cichlid is an omnivore, but with a strongly carnivorous diet in the wild, feeding mostly on benthic invertebrates. In the aquarium they can be fed newly hatched baby brine, frozen brine shrimp, crustaceans, insects, insect larvae, and some may eat flakes and pelleted foods.

The "Double Red" Agassizi have a distinct red colour to their fins as compared to standard Apistogramma agassizii. This listing is for both male and female Apisto. agassizi. Sex is not guaranteed, but we will do our best to accommodate any requests. Each Apisto. approx. 1.5" long.

This dwarf Cichlid, like other cichlids, prefers a sandy substrate and rock formations as they like to build caves in and around the stone.  Having a decent amount of stone is recommended for these fish, and they do well with aquarium plants as well.
