Noto dwarf pikes are dwarf cichlids!!! :D

Of course the fact the feed on your Ivanacara and Apisto fry in nature might turn some people off.

Your male Ivanacara is amazing, I never realized they got that much color. But then most of the pics of this species I've seen are females. Again, congrats!!

ack. Typo ... Crenicichla notophthalmus is a dwarf cichlid ... in nature they prey on Apisto, Ivanacara, and Dicrossus fry ... the pikes are too small to eat the adults. Pretty pastel colors too, come from the same river system, ultra low pH as your Ivanacara.

Beautiful fish. And great post.

I have the opportunity to get some tank-raised adoketa. But my tank currently has a bristlenose pleco and a flash pleco. Would they be compatible? Do any of your adoketa have tankmates?

Yes, just one pleco about 7-8cm. After the pair spawned, I can see the pleco had a very tough time! :wink:
