Trichopsis vittata
Croaking gourami
breeding notes

BREEDING: A typical bubble nester; in a still tank the male will build a nest at the water's surface; after egg laying the male will place eggs into the nest which the pair will guard. Once the fry are free-swimming (around 4-5 days after laying) parental care will end. Young are typically too small to take newly hatched Artemia immediately and must be allowed a few days on paramoecium before moving on to the shrimp.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Great first fish! Livebearers are unlike other fish in that they do not lay eggs; the young develop inside the mother and when born are significantly larger than the offspring of similarly sized egglayers. Species such as the guppy, platy and swordtail are incredibly prolific and are some of the best known, and most colouful aquarium species
