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.

Husbandry

(Linnaeus, 1758)

Not easy to acclimatise. Even when they accept food they often tend to starve. A swarm-fish which grows up to 20" to large for a mixed reef tank. Needs good hiding places and very much room to swim. Can often bee seen on expositions in large scale plants. Lives in depth of 6 - 85 feet.
