Show your Apistos Tanks!!
Im going to start an Apistos tank but want to aquasape and such.. So show me your aquascape tank that contains Apistos!

I don't have one, but the nice ones I have seen incorporate rock work and large leafy plants such as Crypts, Anubias and Swords. These all serve to provide tons of hiding spaces for them to 'nest'.

Don't forget large, smooth rocks if you want them to breed well. =)

Smooth rocks only work for open spawners. Go for caves and such.

The more complex the hard scaping for hiding spots the better IMO. The cichlids like it, and really they add the most to that type of scape. They're rather boring in tanks without caves and hide outs.

Does anyone use pvc piping for caves? Im curious if they would feel just as comfortable in that as they would in a ceramic pot or a cave made from rocks.

I have A. Agassizi breeding in PVC, her favorite place, but no brood. The male likes a clay flower pot.

Anyone keeping the macmasteri?
Any of the european bred varieties? (the color variants of species)?

Apistogramma viejita Rio Meta and A. hongsloi 'red streak' are the only two species that I've kept which were European bred. They were shipped out of Germany.

Im trying to figure out how many Apistos or Blue ram's I can keep in my tank. I want to try to breed them. I might go with the rams... How many can I keep in a 20 gal long?
