Xingu Apistogramma (Apistogramma agassizzi ‘Xingu’)


A colorful and rarely seen dwarf cichlid, the Xingu Apistogramma is found in shallow areas of the fast-moving clear water Rio Xingu in Eastern Brazil. Like most Apistogramma species, they will do best in a tank with peaceful tankmates like small tetras or dwarf rainbows – or in a species tank if breeding is to be attempted. The Xingu Apistogramma requires excellent water quality and regular partial water changes will ensure they thrive in the aquarium.

We will make our best efforts to send pairs or a requested ratio of male to female but we do not guarantee sex on these fish.
