Breeding Age/Size for Venustus

Postby jcover » Tue Feb 04, 2020 12:38 am

I was wondering if anyone can verify at what age/size do venustus start to breed? I have 4 in the 2.5 - 3" size. There is a male that is colouring up. Today I noticed that the aggression had increased in their grow out tank. I also noticed that one "female" had its breeding tube out, like it was ready to breed! This completely surprised me as I thought these were still too young to breed. I saw the male trying to do the breeding dance earlier. I guess we will find out tomorrow if it actually happens or not.

Just an update, they continue to spawn but have not held long. Currently, 2 females that are 3" are holding.
