Robust-looking with an elongated oval shape body, the Apistogramma macmasteri has its dorsal fins with serrated edges and tail fin semi-circle. It is incredibly rewarding to keep this species for its entertaining qualities and unique characteristics.
Wild-caught specimens should be kept exclusively by themselves as they can get skittish around other fish. Captive-bred fish can be kept with other fish of a peaceful nature and similar size but this can vary from individual to individual. Some will do perfectly fine in a community tank while others will either freak out or go after other fish. Generally, it is a good idea to add other fish in small numbers to see how the Apistogramma macmasteri react and take a call according to their individual behavior. More often than not, these fish tend to turn out to be quite peaceful and accepting of other fishes.
Feeds on small invertebrates and are primarily carnivorous but live frozen food such as artemia, daphnia and bloodwoorms should be offered for it in the aquarium regularly although most specimens will also learn to accept dried alternatives with pelleted products generally preferred to flake.
