Although I have heard of cacutoides breeding at pH 7.8 and med-hard water. My 
Apisto tanks are all at 5.0-5.8 and almost no hardness which seems to work 
for most Apistos except borelli.  

With cacatoides one requirement is sufficient suitable breeding sites for the 
females - very low caves with a wide shallow entrance, perhaps this is the 
trigger they need.
