Ease of care
Moderate. Will need a strong filter because they are messy but like good water conditions.
Grazers and pellet can be given regularly. Frozen & live food like Daphnia and Bloodworm should be also given to help enhance the colours.
Community of similar size with no long fined fish. They can be slightly aggressive so caution is advised. Should not be placed with other Apistogramma.
Moderate. They lay eggs in small crevices or cavities. Male Umbrella Cichlids are larger and more colourful than females.
They can live to anything from 3-5 years in perfect conditions.
