Hello dear catfish friends,
Rarely is there any report about the offspring of very large catfish. I may inform you about the random offspring of Acanticus adonis.
The male was about 60 cm tall and the female was about 50 – 55 cm long.
In 2021 the Acanthicus adonis breed in a wooden tank measuring 210 x 300 x 117 cm.
The water parameters were approximately:
- Temp. 28°C
- pH ~6
- KH <1
- GH 2-3
The parents probably spawned in a clay cave attached to the side.
The small Acanthicus adonis were only noticed when they were about 3 – 5 cm in size.
