Apistogramma baenschi (Baensch's Apistogramma, Inca Apistogramma)

A compact, rather sturdy-looking Apistogramma, distinguished by its relatively thin but bold vertical banding on the body (rather like a convict cichlid). The base colour is yellow and the markings are black. The male is somewhat longer and more streamlined the female, and has a broad pinkish-blue area along the flanks. The tail fin tapers and is edged with red. The female lacks the pinkish-blue region and the vertical banding is much more obvious. Her tail fin is rounded.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Best kept alone in a thickly planted aquarium with a few caves. Spawning occurs within a cave, and the fry can be raised with tiny live foods.
