Adding apistogramma to my 180l planted community tank

Nikn

I'm planning to add a trio of apistogramma cichlids. Not sure which type yet. My question is; if I provide enough caves and hiding places, will the fish breed? I would like to promote breeding. Thank you

For most species as long as you have a male and female and some caves, they should be able to spawn. Eggs hatching no guarantee. Eggs will need softer water to hatch.

If you want to breed them (actually produce viable fry) don't use a community tank. To quote the great apistophile Mike Wise, a community tank is NOT a breeding tank.
