Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Meiacanthus mossambicus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade.

Info

Smith, 1959

Easy to keep, will accept flakes and frozen food quickly. Will be shy when he is kept together with fishes which are not as quiet as he is. Good hiding places are a must.

Husbandry know-how of owners

Ich hatte ein Exemplar diese Fisches. Er ist von Anfang an nur recht schwer an Futter gegangen und hat später die Futteraufnahme vollkommen verweigert und ist dadurch verstorben.
es könnte sich aber sehr wahrscheinlich dabei um einen Einzelfall handeln. Das Tier kam schon geschwächt bei mir an.
