The Agassiz’s Dwarf Cichlid is one of the most brightly coloured and beautiful of the dwarf cichlids and is a deservedly popular aquarium fish. In a well-planted aquarium community of other soft water fish, avoiding very timid species, it should present no problems and be a welcome addition. Good filtration and water quality is required for long-term health, and strong medications should be avoided. Plenty of hiding spots and plants are preferred and a good variety of food types will also encourage full health. Keep several females to each male.
