    So, the next try with the same fishes five posts above. Yesterday I started a new try to breed Pangio malayana. The setup is inspired by the Akysis breeding tank from FKS shown here: https://www.seriouslyfish.com/forums/freshwater-and-brackish-water-fishes/breeding-akysis-maculipinnis/

     

     

    The plastic tank

    One of the females with yellow eggs inside.

    Now I have two gravid female and one male in the small tank (another male is in the main tank) and much time…

     

    Cheers,

    Thomas

     

    btw: Frank is right, the software is hell. I’m not able to get the text under the pic. I can add more and more blank lines but the editor takes them away 😡

    Yeah I know Thomas. It’s top of the priority list for things to fix over the holidays. :)

    That set-up would suggest that the fish rise up into the water to spawn, like the Akysis?

    I could imagine. Not for sure but I think I haven’t heard about striped pangios spawning in the substrat. I know it more from the “black” Pangios. But in this tank they can do both.

    Do records of captive breeding exist then? The only ones I’ve seen have been somewhat anecdotal and without photos.

    We have a small group where they get absolutely huge, then “deflate” suddenly, getting nice and slim for a while and then this repeats. Sadly, all the individuals show this, which leads us to believe we’ve just happened to end up with all females! They go daft after a water change and then within a day or two they’ll be looking skinny.

    In the German Magazine DATZ appeared an article about the Pangio of the youtube link. And I’ve heard from (a few) others that their striped Pangio spawns like in the video. Till now I(!) never heard about this spawning behaviour from black pangios.

    In germany we have sometimes Pangio war: Substrate spawning against free spawning. I could imagine, the parties must take care more which pangios they have.

    But, its not a fact, it’s only an idea that I have.

    Ever looked for eggs?

    Thomas, I will look at the video tonight – no You Tube at work. :(

    Never bothered because there doesn’t appear to be any males. The tank is heavily planted and decorated, with lots of shrimp and some Parosphomenus, so I imagine any eggs are quickly mopped up.
