Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

(Bloch & Schneider, 1801)

Occurs primarily on coral reefs. Secretive and usually solitary, under ledges or near small caves. Often seen during the day around the bases of corals. Feeds at night on crabs, shrimps, and polychaetes.
