Breeding Haplochromis nubilus proved to be a real challenge. The male sent the female to the hospital tank more than once…but we succeeded!
Spawning Neolamprologus tretocephalus. A cichlid that can be kept in a mixed tank but becomes very aggressive during spawn and raising the fry.
Breeding Farlowella vittata proved to be quite a challenge. By trial and error I managed to find the right way to breed and raise these wonderful fish.
Keeping and breeding Epiplatys annulatus doesn’t have to be hard. Just provide them a breeding tank, spawning mops and Java Moss. The fry however need very tiny food like green water and rotifers).
Although Nothobranchius palmqvisti are not the easiest Notho to raise they are among the prettiest, and if you give them the conditions I have outlined they can be most rewarding.
Rivulus hartii or Giant Rivulus proofed to be an easy to breed and keep killifish, an excellent choice for beginning and advanced hobbyists.
Have You Heard about the Procatopus aberrans? You haven’t? Neither had I but I managed to breed them!
I have been asked by multiple people how to breed crayfish. It’s actually much easier than you would think!
