Apistogramma agassizi alenquer pairs are a species of cichlid fish native to the Amazon basin in South America. This species of fish is known for its unique coloration, with males displaying bold black stripes across a bright yellow body, while the females are a more muted yellow-brown hue. They are usually found in pairs and are relatively peaceful, making them an ideal choice for community aquariums. They do best in tanks with plenty of hiding places and a sandy substrate, and should be provided with plenty of vegetation for grazing. They can grow up to 4 inches in length and live for up to five years, making them an interesting and long-lasting addition to any aquarium.
