I usually keep my A. cacatuoides at about 28 C... sometimes in summer
the temp can get as high as 30, but not for long periods of time...

This summer when my AC broke my apartment (and aquariums) were in the upper
80's for 2 weeks and the fish in these rooms were fine. It even spurred the
Rotpunkt to spawn.

Also, I noticed that the default "Respond" address on this list has been
changed from the list itself to the sender. I know there were little
problems but my vote is to keep the list address as the default.

I keep Cacatuoides and Borellii no higher than 78f pH 6.8 - 7.0.
I have successfully housed Nijsseni and Ramirezi with Discus - 84f pH
6.0-6.5.  Could the pH values in the chaps Discus tank also be a
contributing factor the their demise?

Hi Kathy,

I have successfully kept and spawned cacatuoides and agassizii with Discus
in a 90-gallon tank at about 83-84*F.

Cheers,
Keith Kurko


Hi everyone,

Had a question for the list.  I was asked the other day about keeping
apisto's with Discus.  This person has lost both borellii and cacatuoides
with the Discus, which are in good health.  They thought it was due to the
high temp.  Anyone have any experience with this?  What is the max temp
people have kept apito's at?

Kathy

I 've been keeping mine at 80-82, but that's just a bad habit from when I used
to keep discus. My Tansvestitus spawned at 86 when they were housed with some
wild heckels, So I've been inclined to keep them a little warmer. My aggies
croaked at that temp though.

My girlfriend and I keep all of our tanks between 80 and 84 F.  We keep
both discus and apistos in the display tank with no problems.  (Currently,
it has 2 turquoise blue and 1 wild-caught discus, 1 pair of Rams, 1 pair of
D. filamentosa, 1 female D. maculata, and 1 pair of A. pertensis, along
with a school of cardinals and some cleaner fish.)  We have found that as
long as the tank is well planted and decorated to provide havens for the
dwarfs and the discus, the fish do very well together.

My 1.5 cents,

--Cliff

I've kept apistos 32-33ºC for three or four months, because of the high
temperatures hier in south Spain, and I had no losses. The species I've
kept are gibbiceps, agassizii, cacatuoides and resticulosa, also some L.
curviceps and P. altiespinosa, the point is just a good tank aeration.

I currently keep and breed A. cacatuoides at 27-28 C. I'm planing to keep most of the offspring together with my discus when the offspring have grown big enough to have a good chance not to get eaten by the discus.

I have about 30 C in my discus tanks. The reason the A. cacatuoides tank is 27-28 is because I'm a lodger and only have a 16 m2 room at my disposal (where I have to sleep, study etc), but have managed to squeeze in 7 tanks. :-) I air the room to keep the temperature down, still it's 27-28 C in the A. cacatuoides tank WITHOUT a heater in the tank, but they don't seem to mind.

Best fishes,
Max Strandberg

Warm Water Apistos

by "Thomas Wilkinson" <ttwilki/mindspring.com>
Date: Wed, 25 Oct 2000
To: <apisto/listbox.com>

Steve
I can give you the water temperature where I collected several Apistos.
A. guttata  28C
A. hoignei 30C, 27C, 29C, 35C  (several different sites)
A. "piacoa" 29C
A. nijsseni - unfortunately did not get temp but water was fairly cool-
guess around 24-25C
A. norberti - again no formal temp but water cool and shaded.
Rams  33C, 30C
Nannacara "venezuela" 35C, 28C,
As with the two above without temps I did not get temps on collecting sites
for
A. agassizi (cool  and shaded), bitainiata, cacatoides,eunotus, or
Apistogrammoides.  Those were in my early days of collecting and more
interested in getting fish and unfortunately not collecting proper data.
