Paretroplus kieneri & Katria katria

Post by Hypancistrus_spp » Mon Nov 04, 2013 8:52 pm


I was wondering if there is any subsisting captive population of Katria katria.
I have been after this species for several years but have come empty handed so far.
I was wondering if anyone was keeping these and hopefully breeding them.

ALso after some Paretrolplus kieneri

Never Give up, don't ever give up!

Hi Yann
Katria has vanished from the US. Paretroplus kieneri is being produced by Laif Demason Old World exotic farms in Florida. I have a few adult kieneri but have not had fry in at least 12 months.
The best way to have consistent breeding is to place them in ponds.
