Spawning Method: Peat (or similar) spawning substrate
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Easy
Success: Fairly unsuccessful
Other Comments: This strain was distributed into the hobby by W. Putz (DKG) from his trip to Togo in 1985. The biggest problem I experienced was velvet with the fry - once they made it to the adult stage, they were easy to breed and maintain. I usually ended with a few extra females. (I also kept the Mali stain for a while but always had a problem with them - very male heavy and extremely aggressive).
