The Apistogramma Cacatuoides is also known as a Dwarf Cockatoo Cichlid or The Crested Dwarf Cichlid, it prefers a planted tank or tanks with lots of rocks and driftwood. They are a peaceful dwarf cichlid that can be kept in a community tank, but when it comes to spawning they can become territorial a relatively big tank is needed. The Cockatoo Cichlid grows to 7.5cm and has a nice blood red dorsal fin, and in some cases an orange dorsal fin. This really depends on the species it is and wheres it from. The most popular variety of the Cacatuoides is either Super Red or Double Red.
