I have successfully used Golden Pencilfish in a few Apisto tanks and found that Black Neons worked a treat when breeding A.gibbiceps. These neons still reside with the gibbiceps!! I have also employed Spotted Blue-Eye (Pseudomugil Gertrudae) and Honey Blue-Eye (Pseudomugil Mellis) although I have a distinct preference for the nonostomus varients although beckfordi is best avoided as advised by those who have experienced them.
