Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Plectorhinchus vittatus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Plectorhinchus vittatus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Plectorhinchus vittatus, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
