Breeding Report: Fundulopanchax amieti
Water conditions: Moderately soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Adult fish removed from tank
Breeding problems: Poor egg production
Sex ratio: Somewhat female heavy
Breeding difficulty: Easy
Success: Average
Other Comments: I bred them a small tank with sand and peat and java moss. The parents might even prefer the sandy bottom over the peat. I removed the parents and left the eggs in the water and after 5 weeks the young appear. Not may eggs and young, but in a sex-ratio of 1 male, 2 females, which is perfectly right for breeding further. Nice and friendly fish, eat any live or dried food.
