Apisto Cichlid could also mean A. agassizii, A. borellii, A. nijsseni, or any of the other couple dozen species of Apistogramma which have very different markings and colors. Anyone who knows they have A. cacatuoides specifically calls them Cockatoo Dwarves, Cockatoos, or by their scientific name.

If you would say cacatuoides in a conversation with anyone who knows cichlids, they would know what fish you were talking about. Isn't that all that matters?
