Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Pictichromis diadema (Lubbock & Randall, 1978)
Diadem dottyback

Found in sheltered reefs with rich coral growth. Small groups are found among coral or rocks. Minimum depth reported from Ref. 27115.

Might harm shrimps, keeping mostly like Pseudochromis species. Real rude guy against all kinds of other fish.

Meine Tiere sind beide genau 4 Jahre alt geworden (dazu noch ca. 0,5 Jahre vorher).

Ein echter aggressiver Giftzwerg, der seine Ruffecke wütend verteidigt. Jetzt, nach meheren Monaten, lässt die Aggression etwas nach. Ich konnte nicht beobachten, dass er andere Fische tatsächlich geschädigt hätte. Ich würde ihn nicht noch mal kaufen...

Mir scheint, Ich kenne diesen Fisch auch unter dem Namen Pseudochromis diadema. Das ist, meine ich, ein Synonym.
