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

Too many fish? Overstocked tanks stress the fish in many ways: competition for food and space, bullying from other fish, deterioration of water quality and increased concentration of disease vectors. A lightly stocked tank will always be easier to care for, with more stable water quality
