Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Manonichthys splendens (Fowler, 1931)

This wonderful fish is seldomly seen in the shops and therfore quite expensive. May get agressive against others of his species and smaller fish. Usually solitary, occasionally in pairs.

Classification

Husbandry know-how of owners

herbert margreve am 24.01.05#1
Ich pflege einen einzelnen dieser Fische seit etwa 3 Monaten.
Die Eingewöhnung war problemlos.
Der Fisch ist aber sehr scheu (Auch nach 3 Monaten noch). Er ist immer unter dem Riffaufbau und kommt nur kurz beim füttern raus.
Ich habe keinerlei Agressionen gegen andere Fische festgestellt. Er scheint eher unterwürfig zu sein und verzieht sich schnell.
