Breeding Report: Aphyosemion ogoense

Water conditions: Moderately soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Breeding problems: Poor egg production
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Difficult
Success: Fairly successful
Other Comments: It's better the natural method. Keep a pair in a 20 liters aquarium with a mop, some peat and plants. The adults need frozen artemia and bloodworms, but if you add artemia nauplii some fries will grow up with their parents.
