Apistogramma bitaeniata


Active Member
Hi all!

Small question...
Sadly, my great a. bitaeniata male died. He was heavy breathing and a bit overall swollen, for some days. I tried to look up the symptoms, but couldn't find the cause or act on any in time.

So here's my question, what do you think is best? -redecorate the caves and a bit of the interior and then add one of my young males i got from a previous spawn (he might need to get a bit bigger, since they are only around 3-3,5 cm long)... -or completely switch the trio with male and females from my spawn?
