steatocranus casuarius (humphead) eggs

Recommended Posts

i purchased a pair of humpheads a short time ago. i recently did a partial water change and today i noticed eggs in the cave with the female. I am looking for some advice on how to care for them. things like do i leave the male in the same tank? etc. i have heard that the eggs dislike light. is this true?

cheers, nick

hi nick, i'm only new to breeding humpheads, but its best to le4ave the pair together, mine have now hatched 2 batches of eggs and have both lots swimming around together, its cool watching mum and dad take their bubs out for a swim around, so i'd leave them together and maybe move the fry when they are big enough to handle the move,

hi steveandjules, ok that saves a lot of hassle knowing that the fry wont get eaten. is it possible to have more adults with them. i have 2 males in my display tank and would consider getting some females for them if they can get along together.

thanks, nick
