______________________Allgemeines For keeping apistogramma_______________
Animals of the genus Apistogramma are all from South America, the genus includes very many types (and there are continually added new) that are more or less frequently offered commercially. All species are called Haremsbildner ie a m. claimed several w. But that should not hide the many w. can be extreme bitches.
Apistogramma are fundamentally no simple fish !!!!!!!!!!!
Although "kacadu" and Co. is today gladly sold as easy-care simpler and more peaceful perch not or only partly true that way.
Who wants to keep Apistogramma successfully should note the following points:
The pelvis should be established Apistogerecht (The following tips relate to a frequent Offset community tank with ZBB):
1. Beck size on 80x35 base height is not secondary. Means optimally with sandy soil, definitely roots and caves, dense planting many hiding places.
I would always recommend a pool min. To have 3 month run stably on before Apistos come in.
2.The water: there are quite tolerant species and there are real niggles that may be indeed kept at non-matching values, but increased under any circumstances.
Fits the water is not so, we recognize the frequently first of all the long Flossenausüge, especially pelvic fins, are lost.
Even with torleranten species such as A.cacatuoides are fluctuating water levels and temperature variations not beneficial to health.
Nitrite and nitrate have no place in the basin, the basin should be sparse and partial water change should be carried out regularly. If you want to fiddle around on the water parameters so should the front of the water change !!!!!! and does not happen in the pelvis.
The water should be as clean as possible.
3.The food: the food should be as well, so varied and so balanced as humanly possible.
Selbstgetümpeltes live food is clearly to favor, Artemia and other live feed from breeding or loading are also good, but always pay attention to hygiene.
Frozen food is also good flakes and granules, even when very good products should not !!!!!!!! His main food.
4.Besatz / Company: As described above, all Apistos Haremsbildner, the classical approach in the pair, however, are going well.
There are some quite large expectant ways in which women can be very bitchy, here primarily A.cacatuoides, here should correspondingly large containers be provided.
Basically a female area has a diameter of about 30cm, which can be increased in case of poor planting a funnel to the top.
One should bear in mind when stocking planning always the the "co-inhabitants" must be selected in accordance with it should always involve peaceful species best without home turf claim, or the pool must be correspondingly large.
In the literature known to me is repeatedly pointed out quiet and peaceful co-inhabitants and that should be strictly observed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whether one puts a couple or a group, or even a harem is dependent on the tank size, the type and age of the animals and should always be clarified individually.
By following these instructions so is a successful attitude no more obstacles.
Finally, a par Tips:
One should observe well and respond quickly to signs of discomfort Apistos always, most drugs are not tolerated, diseases show significant Sympthome usually lead to death.
Also important is the origin of the animals. the dealer should be trustworthy, I would prefer breeder or exchanges. Animals should make a very healthy impression fins Klemmer should remain the same in the store, the same applies for sunken bellies curved back, etc.
