definately agree, I tend to keep all my apistos at default <30 ppm pH 4.5-5.5 
and have had huge spawns from norberti, nijsseni, hongsloi, cacutoides, Rams 
and dicrossus filiamentosa.  The only two species I've struggled with are 
borelli and hippolytae - can anyone tell me the preffered conditions for 
breeding them?
