The Panda Dwarf Cichlid (Apistogramma nijsseni) was an absolute sensation when it was first introduced at the end of the 1970s. The breeding was successful right away, but it took several years before it was understood that the – often extreme – male surplus observed in the offspring came from too high water temperatures during breeding.
Since this problem has been solved, the panda dwarf cichlid is almost always available as offspring and only very seldom wild caught cichlids come to us. Our animals currently in the stock are German offspring and very lively and stable.
For our customers: the animals have code 625003 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesalers.
