Apistogramma borellii - yellow (Umbrella Dwarf Cichlid)
One of the more common Apistogramma species. As with most of the Apistogramma species there are several different colour morphs. Most adult males have a metallic blue body although in some cases they have more yellow bodies.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
These fish are peaceful. Their tank should be well planted and include many hiding places. The male usually occupies a territory with just one female.
Males are slightly larger than the females and they develop a very tall dorsal fin. The females are also a lot less colourful and tend to be more yellow in colour.
To achieve breeding success condition them on a good quality diet. The female will release the eggs in small batches which will be immediately fertilised by the male. The eggs will be attached to a surface, usually in a cave and will hatch in around three days. The fry will be free swimming after around seven days when they can be fed on newly hatched brine shrimp and other small fry foods.
Further fish details are shown below:
