Hey guys,

i'm planning the population to put in my 120l tank with Otocinclus, Cardinals/Neon Tetra and maybe Corydoras. I find Apistos Cacatuoides, Agassizii and Macmasteri beautiful but I can't decide which one to choose.

Just a little poll: which one do you personally prefer?

And another question: the bigger are the Apistos, the better is for me. Which of the 3 species reaches the greater dimensions?

Are there any significat differences among the 3 species in terms of water values or behaviour?

From my understanding:
- Cacatuoides are more aggressive when breeding
- Cacatuoides can stay at higher pH (7)
- Macmasteri requires higher temperature (>25 °C)

Is it correct? What about GH and KH?

The Apistos requirements are about the same (water wise). Low GH and KH would be nice.
