Breeding Report: Crenichthys baileyi moapae
Water conditions: Moderately hard and alkaline, 24-27oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Easy
Success: Fairly successful
Other Comments: Eggs arrived on plants collected from the Moapa River. All disposed of when the legal status of captive populations was determined (a no-no in USA). Beautiful aquarium fish with golden brown basic colors and bright gold flashing dorsal bands when males are courting, which is almost all the time. Had to remove mops for hatch as juveniles apparently are predatory on eggs and babies. They eat flakes, frozen or live foods, but the latter may be needed for good egg production.
