Marble Mouth Frogfish at 1 month old

Postby Frogfish » Fri May 18, 2012 4:56 pm

To make a really long story short, I was finally successful in my attempt at breeding Lopiocharon lithinostomus, or the marble mouth frogfish.
The babies are gonna be a month old this weekend.

Here is the latest video of the babies, and you can find the rest of my vids from there, I got a brief chronicle from when I found the eggs till now.
The latest update is day 23 posthatch, which was a few days ago...

Day 23

There is an old thread farther down on this forum page, a guy in japan got some babies, but the thread stops at day 11.
Does anybody know what happened?
I tried to post a reply on that thread but it didnt go thru for some reason.

Oh very cool! Congrats!
Given sufficient thrust, pigs will fly just fine.

Welcome Frogfish!.This is amazing,I´m sure many people are now anxious to breed them! 8)
Are they easy to find in LFS?.How you mate the pair?.
Tell us more about how you keep them and bred them.
Most frogfish produce tiny pelagic larvae and nobody could raise them yet.

Hi! Frogfish,

Congratulations for your success! I had handled the same species several years ago. I had aroud 30 juveniles of 80 days old. But they started cannibalism among themselves by this time so that I gaved the petshop all of them.
