Apistogramma cacatuoides, one of the many South American dwarf cichlids.

I shortly had a pair of these cichlids, but unfortunately they much too soon after I got them. It was at the same time, where my entusiasme was very low and things like water changes was not as frequent as it should have been. I don't know if that was why they died, they they only lived for 4-5 months.

They are said to be one of the most hardy Apistogramma species and also supposedly one of the easiest to breed.
