I know theres no reports of it in the catelog but i was just wondering if anyone knows any info on how they breed, what water conditions .ect? Does anyone have any experience with them?
Ive got 7 Akysis prashadi and 3 Akysis longifilis (i know its a bit crammed but im going to split them up once i get my 150G set up for my other fish) and would like to have a go at breeding them. I know its very unlikely they will but its worth a try.
One more question. Can they cross breed or will it be ok to condition and try and breed the hole group together? 2 Of the A.longifilis are already getting quite big and ive only have them about a week.
Last year I got A prashadi to spawn, they spawned over an artificial 'egg trap' area in amongst the nylon woolen strands. (yes I know the device looks a bit Heath Robinson, but it is what I have used to spawn Danio's). I did not observe any parental care & unfortunately all the eggs were infertile.
I used to be indecisive but now I am not quite sure.
