Pacman Apisto (Apistogramma sp. D12)

8 In stock

Remarks: Apistogramma sp. D12 is known commonly as the Pacman Apisto, for it has a spot on the caudal peduncle in the shape of the popular arcade character, Pacman. The bright yellow color of both males and females also helps them live up to their namesake. This species is not commonly imported, but is certainly a beauty to behold. A sandy substrate is necessary due to their earth-eating habits. The tank should be furnished with several caves or nooks to protect and spawn in. Cichlid caves, overturned flower pots, and leaf litter work well. Males will show their best colors when in the presence of females. 

Breeding is achieved by feeding live baby brine shrimp to an adult pair and providing a proper tank setup. Fry are guarded by one or both parents for several weeks. Dither fish such as small tetras and livebearers can be used to provide parents with targets to chase.
