They are not picky about how their tank is decorated, but for a natural look, a sandy substrate can be used and driftwood can be arranged into caves. They prefer dimmer lighting and live plants that can grow in low light can also be added. They can be kept with other semi-aggressive community fish but should not be mixed with other apistogramma unless they are a breeding pair.
They are carnivorous and will accept a variety of meaty foods. They should be given bloodworms, tubifex, brine shrimp and daphnia--live or frozen. They can also eat high quality pellet and flake foods.
