A lot of things could have happened the apisto could brought the disease in the tank.

Lot's of time you don't see aggression.

But I would say a non breeding Apisto Cacauoitodes is a relatively mild mannered fish.

Added a Cockatoo Cichlid (apistogramma Cacauoitodes) to my 12 gal tank two weeks ago. Tank also contained a healthy year old Honey Gourami and two 4 month old Black Phantom Tetras. All seemed fine until the Gourami suddenly developed what I think was Dropsy and died. I read that Dropsy could be caused by stress. I only saw the cichlid nudge the gourami once or twice, no real aggression but I don't know if more aggression happened during the nights. My question is: before I buy another Honey Gourami, is this type of cichlid compatible with it? Thank you.
