I AM FOR SURE GETTING ONE OF THEESE IN MY TANK WHENEVER I CAN FIND ONE LOCALLY, I HAVE HEARD THAT THEY BREED EASILY, ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT? I WISH I COULD PUT 10 OF THEM IN MY TANK HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE
well...those fishes are hermafrodites, they are born being females and then change to male in their way to become adults so, if you want a female try getting a young Citron and for a male search for an adult. The baby fishes are very hard to take care of because when they are born is very dificult to place them in other tank because they are very small and get eaten by other fishes or dont get enough food. I sugest that you make a species tank just for the Citron pair and rise the temperature of the water to 86-87F because they like warmer waters to...make babies :shock: , in the tank you need to put any kind of soft coral because the female use the coral as a way to protect her eggs and usually she doesnt lay her eggs in the open. :mrgreen: try this http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm ... cleid=2062
They do spawn in the aquarium but the biggest problems are predation like already mentioned and feeding them food that they will/can eat. Most fry are difficult to get to eat food that is not live, food that is small enough and has a high enough nutrition is also difficult.
