Cichlid Pair in Tank 8

Mated pair of apistograma cacatoides triple red, (means red on 3 fins), from South America.  This is the highest grade these cichlids come in.  Very rare and this pair has bred 3 times in the fluval edge before being moved to the 40 gallon.   That is a catappa leaf in the background.  It helps with balancing the water in the tank, adding tannins, good bacteria, and also creates good breeding conditions.  AG sometimes boils the leaves, lets cool, then adds to the tank. Sometimes he just throws the dry leaves in.
