Lamprichthys tanganicanus
Lake Tanganyika lampeye
breeding notes

BREEDING: Breeding takes place, like many lampeye species, by laying eggs in a crevice. In this case it is generally on the surface of rock structures, however it is easier to make an artificial crevice for them, so the eggs can be removed and reared seperately. A good crevice is made by placing terracotta plant pots inside each other, leaving a very small gap.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Avoid tankbusters! Too many tropical fish stores sell small fish that will continue growing until too big for any home aquarium. Rehousing can be very difficult indeed. Avoid species such as the shovel-nosed and red tailed catfish
