Apistogramma sp. "Kelleri" male with snails

A 9 month old Apistogramma sp. ‘Kelleri’ male.

 

The species originates in Colombia, from around the city of Leticia.

 

The species is primarily a carnivore and able to tollerate higher water temperatures, making it a suitable companion for discus.

 

While the species is a mouthbrooder, it will also raise fry on substrate at times. Both parents are able to mouthbrood the fry, and which one it is often depends on the circumstances.
