Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Heniochus monoceros are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Heniochus monoceros, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Heniochus monoceros, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Husbandry

Haltung wie andere Wimpelfische, werden aber mit 23 cm sehr gross für ein normales Heimaquarium.

Ansonsten ist uns noch wenig über die Aquariumhaltung bekannt.
