Excellent choice of dwarfs for your planted tank. Easy to spawn as well.
You can try I guess. But at the same time they are not going to show their best colors without females in the tanks. Both species have spectacular coloration during breeding. In "off-season" they are just another normal looking dwarf cichlid.sjogren1 said:What if they are both males and there are no females in the tank?
Do these fish scare, eat, or bother in any way Amano shrimps or Otos?
I ask becasue I have some Apistos that I wish I didn't have because they don't let shrimp or otos do anything else but hide without even moving.
