Anyone breeding petricolas? I have a group and the females always have big bellies. Just wondering how you guys set it up for them to breed.

Thanks
Wil

I've witnessed mine breeding on occasion in my show tank, actually found a 1cm fry when rearranging some rockwork but it swam off and a Yellow lab had a snack. When I have the time I'm going to follow what is mentioned in this article:

Cheers

Thanks MDR! I'm sure mine have tried as the females have been pretty fat for a long time now. There are enough fish in there that successful breeding would probably not happen. When my Afra Cobue spit only a few survive.

That was one of the articles that I read. I made something similar but what I used for the eggs to fall through will probably have holes that are too small. I think I'll have to remake it with the egg crate.

I haven't seen them in there yet but it's only been in there for a few days.

Not a problem, hopefully others chime in here. I plan on putting together a 20g tank with egg crate bottom dedicated to breeding these fish in a few months. I just wish the adults wouldn't eat their own eggs!
