Questions regarding to Ctenops nobilis
Ctenops nobilis is exclusively available as Import.
Cause : As far as I know no one succeeded in breeding them any further than juveniles. However to acchieve a stable Stock from these very interesting but difficult anabantoids, stable breeding results are a to be obtained. We need to investigate why breeding hasn’t been suceesfull up till now. Therefore I need all possible information from every attempt. Please provide us with all the information you have so we can sort out what the key to succesfully breeding Ctenops noblis is. I have made a list with questions wich I’d like you to answer. (as far as possible).
I would be delighted if as many as possible would react to my request and would like to thank you all in advance.
