AquariumFishSale imports the Hongsloi dwarf cichlids from Peru as they tend to grow larger and more colorful than the same species in Columbia. Apistogrammas and rams are the smallest cichlids and are very adaptive to planted and community tanks. Males are very beautiful.
Smaller fish have shorter lives, and apistogrammas generally live four years, with the exception of the Hongsloi, which lives to seven years. There are two hundred different dwarf cichlids and AFS imports numerous species.
