    Are these species available in singapore and does anyone know where to get them?

    I would really like to get either/or for my planted tank.

    Thanks!

    You can get them from LFS like C328 (usually in the tanks where they sell their otos and dwarf cories), Y618 (in their sakura/fire red shrimp tank) or Green Chapter (usually found randomly in a number of their tanks).

    Have to really look closely to find them in the tanks though, they are very small and camouflage very well.

    Thanks. Are they expensive? i don't remember seeing them at Y618 actually. Perhaps i haven't been looking hard enough. They usually sell them in bags?

    Also im abit concerned if i can comm them together with my apisto pair.

    If i remember correctly, they are usually around $1-$2 each... they are kept in the tanks and it can be quite difficult to spot them, very often you'll mistake them as just tiny floating sticks or twigs.

    Yeah, if your apistos are large enough to eat cherry shrimps, they will be able to eat these fishes too.

    They are not meant to be kept with other fishes, except small species like Boraras etc. Apistogramma can easily bite and snap off their tails, which are rather fragile. They are excellent in shrimp tanks as seed shrimp controllers. They must be given live food as frozen and dried foods are usually not eaten by these micropredators.
