Apistogramma cruzi


Apistogramma cruzi
Green Face Blue Pearl Apistogramma
青面蓝珍珠短鲷
A territorial fish that can be combined with other Apistogramma species, corydoras, and schooling fish of the upper swimming levels. Males form harems, thus one male should be kept with several females. Males defend a large territory in which several females may guard their own brood. The aquarium should be set up with stones, driftwood and roots, and on the sides and background densely planted, because they need hiding places. Females are aggressive to each other so you need a bigger tank.
The fish is omnivorous, so you should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

Breeding is not easy. Up to 60 eggs are laid and fertilized in a cave. After 3 days the eggs hatch and another 6 days later the young fishes are swimming free. The female guards the young fanatical and the male defends the territory. You can feed the young with infusoria and a few days later with baby brine shrimp.

同样也是分布在亚马逊河水域的美丽鱼种,体轴上的纵纹是他的特征,而吸引人们焦点的是他泛青光的头部。雄鱼鳃部有蓝,红色的斑纹,鳃盖上有黄色调。此鱼在apistogramma属中算是珍贵稀有的。
