Average success

Breeding Report: Aphyosemion ocellatum
Water conditions: Moderately soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Average
Success: Average
Other Comments: Parents do not molest their young, which seem to grow on better when left in the breeding tank. Sudden mortality rate increase with juveniles and previously with Nzenzele strain possibly due to insufficient furnishing of container and subsequent stress. Juveniles in dark, well furnished tank seem OK. Males take a while to colour up - look for the dark edging to the unpaired fins first.
