The Apistogramma cf. alacrina D18 is a species of dwarf cichlids native to South America, more precisely from the Rio Orinoco River basin in Venezuela. “cf.” in the scientific name means "confer," indicating a tentative identification due to similarities to the described species, but with possible distinctions.

When it comes to water parameters, these Apistogrammas generally want soft to slightly acidic water conditions. A water pH between 5.5 and 7.0 is often recommended. The optimal temperature is generally between 24 and 28 degrees Celsius.

Water hardness can vary, but these dwarf cichlids often prefer soft to moderately hard water, with total hardness (GH) in the range of 2 to 15 dGH.

In terms of environment, it is recommended to provide hiding areas, aquatic plants and roots in the aquarium. These fish also want fine substrates because they can burrow into them.

The behavior of Apistogramma cf. alacrina D18 can vary, but they generally have territorial behaviors. Males may develop bright colors and display courtship behaviors.

It is always recommended to do specific research on the species and consult reliable sources for more detailed information, as needs may vary slightly between individuals.
