breeding notes

BREEDING: A typical maternal mouthbrooder, that breeds quite readily. Generally eggs are laid on a pre-cleaned stone, and are then gathered up and cared for in the females mouth. This is one of the easier species to spawn and maintain. If they do not breed, removing some of the more aggressive tank mates will often do the trick. Water changes also seem to stimulate breeding behaviour.

Have you bred Metriaclima estherae? Why not fill in a breeding questionaire?

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Many aquarium species are territorial; these should only be kept with other fish in a larger tank with space for each. In a well-stocked dealers tank there is no chance to set up a territory, but problems will arise once introduced into your home community aquarium
