Orange "Chatika" Alto Comps Breeding again

Post by Jon Carman on Sat May 15, 2010 1:38 pm

They pay no attention to each other, until the female starts cleaning out her shell or barnacle. Then the male will come over and guard her until she gets it clean and enters. Then all I see is the females tail in the shell for a few weeks. The male, who is normally on a different end of the tank, hovers right over her making sure no one else comes near. It is really cool.

That's really cool, congrats on the spawn Wink

I'm kinda nosy and like to be able to see what's going on so I modified a breeding bell by siliconing a flat rock to the front of it leaving a small opening for the female to enter. I don't disturb them while they are spawning but after the spawn I can keep an eye on the development.
