Re: [Killietalk] Epiplatys duboisi
I have had success with E.duboisi using water under 50 ppm, temperature
20-22C, with java moss and java fern in the tank. Filtration was a small
sponge filter. The tank was a 5 gal. half-filled. I used a small floating
mop. Fry were fed infusoria. Some fry did pop up in the parents tank. But,
overall I had better success when I picked the eggs. They are a nice fish,
but very shy.
