Breeding Report: Scriptaphyosemion cauveti
Water conditions: Moderately soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Very easy
Success: Very successful
Breeder: Rickard Berg 671-10, Sweden/Västerbotten (5 years experience with this species)
Date this record created: 3rd December 2002
Breeding Report: Scriptaphyosemion cauveti
Location code: GRCH 93/293, Barraque de Loire d'Atlantique
Water conditions: Very soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Long term (fry appear with adults)
Breeding problems: Poor fry survival rate
Sex ratio: Somewhat male heavy
Breeding difficulty: Very easy
Success: Very successful
Other Comments: Very beautiful fish with high intense colors of dark blue mixed with deep red. Can be breed with mop or in a larger group setup. Usually fry come up in moderate quantities together with the adults. I have them in a heavily planted large community tank (400 litres) with few other fishes. They perform well even at longer periods of higher temperatures (27°C and above). Fry come up also in this tank. For intensive breeding, the mop method in a small (10 litre) tank is preferred.
Breeder: Axel Schwekendiek, Germany
Date this record created: 5th October 2003
Breeding Report: Scriptaphyosemion cauveti
Location code: Kindia
Water conditions: Moderately hard and alkaline, 24-27oC
Spawning Method: Long term (fry appear with adults)
Breeding difficulty: Very easy
Success: Very successful
Other Comments: I left 3 pairs in a 30g tank. Chock full of najas, and a few mops. A 3mm layer of sand as a substrate. After 3 months it is full of fish from small fry to 1 inch juvenilles. Interestingly enough the adults are VERY timid. I never see them. Not ever. The young are a different story; they seem quite at home, spending their lives playing by the front glass
Breeder: Jules (2 years experience with this species)
Date this record created: 8th March 2004
Breeding Report: Scriptaphyosemion cauveti
Water conditions: Neutral, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Breeding problems: Skewed sex ratio
Sex ratio: Somewhat male heavy
Breeding difficulty: Average
Success: Fairly successful
Other Comments: Initial experience with these fishes was that they were very timid. They would hide away in plants/mops and never been seen except for a lightning dash to snatch food. However, I've found that by keeping them in tanks with with other species (and only by using other species) they will become much calmer and willing to show themselves. Breeding is no problem - they are reasonably prolific when well settled, and will spawn on bottom-mops and in substrate (peat fibre). I remove eggs from mops and fry fromthe parent tank as I have seen small fry taken on occasion. Eggs are small, but fry represent no particular problems and will immediately accept Artemia nauplii on hatching. Growth rate is average. I keep my fish in a tapwater/rainwater mix 50/50 which is pH 6.5 and dH4. Temperature is 22C, but I've foundno change in behaviour or egg production in temperatures ranging from 18C to 26C.

Average success

Breeding Report: Scriptaphyosemion cauveti
Water conditions: Neutral, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Breeding problems: Skewed sex ratio
Sex ratio: Somewhat male heavy
Breeding difficulty: Average
Success: Average
Other Comments: As per my entry for the Kindia location for this species. No real differences other than I find that the Kindia location has stronger colouration and demarkation on the flanks.
Breeder: Ian Allcroft BKA 157-06, Harrogate, North Yorkshire (2 years experience with this species)
Date this record created: 14th August 2002
Breeding Report: Scriptaphyosemion cauveti
Location code: Kindia
Water conditions: Moderately soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Long term (fry appear with adults)
Breeding problems: Poor egg production
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Easy
Success: Average
Other Comments: The fish are very easy to keep and will readily accept frozen foods and live. Live BBS and blackworms will cause the female to roe up quickly. The eggs are tiny, my pair hides them and the fry just show up in the tank. Fry are small and will need infusoria for about a week or so before graduating to microworms and live bbs.

Unsuccessful

Breeding Report: Scriptaphyosemion cauveti
Water conditions: Neutral, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Long term (fry appear with adults)
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Easy
Success: Fairly unsuccessful
Other Comments: Fry are generally left alone by parents, however, older fry will feed on younger newly hatched siblings.Removing them to a separate container will improve survival rates, they grow slowly. Live food such as microworms and BBS are eagerly accepted, they can easily be converted to quality dried foods as well. Bottom mops seem to be preferred for laying eggs as well as hiding. A darkened area for the tank is also recommended.
