Buy live freshwater aquarium tropical fish, also known as Apistogramma nijsseni, now available online for delivery to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and rest of the UAE.... ( Read More )
Primarily carnivorous and apparently feeds mostly on bottomfeeders and invertebrates in nature, the Apistogramma nijsseni, in the aquarium, should be offered regularly with live and frozen foods such as artemia, daphnia and bloodworm although most specimens will also learn to accept dried alternatives with pelleted products generally preferred to flake.
Captive-raised fish are the recommended choice for the community aquarium. Wild examples are best-maintained alone or with small 'dither' fish such as Nannostomus spp., and ideally should not be mixed with other Apistogramma.
