Panda Apisto
(Apistogramma nijsseni)

Common names:
Panda apiso, Nijsseni’s dwarf cichlid,
Size: Female 6cm, Male 8cm
pH: 5.0 – 7.0
Tempº: 23ºC - 26ºC (73 F - 78 F)
Tank region: Middle-Bottom layer
Origin: Peru
Gender: Females have classic ‘Panda’ coloration, males are grey with a blue sheen. Males are bigger.
Notes: These omnivorous bottom-dwelling cichlids are peaceful to all species but other Dwarf cichlids and Bottom dwellers. As with most cichlids, great personality and fascinating behavior are features of this species. The Panda apisto prefers a heavily planted tank, and must have a complex habitat with various caves. This apisto is fairly demanding, and if it’s needs are not met properly the fishes will not fare well at all. A beautiful species for the more advanced fishkeeper.
