Breeding Report: Aphyosemion celiae winifredae
Water conditions: Moderately soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Easy
Success: Fairly successful
Other Comments: I have found that the fishes can produce valid eggs from about 6 months, and will continue to produce valid eggs beyond 2 years of age is kept well fed, and given a nice dimly lit tank with Java Fern & Moss, and dark coloured mops. I find the eggs are laid at all levels - from the corks to the very tips of the training bottoms.
