Info on Dascyllus trimaculatus?

Postby rortreefer » Tue Dec 20, 2011 5:58 am

Hey Guys,

I am try to do some background research on D. trimaculatus breeding. We currently have quite a few breeding pairs at my work and would like to set up a few systems to try and capture the eggs and breed them. I have found limited info online (including a Malaysian science journal) and was hoping to find some more detailed info here. Anyone know if these are very similar to other speices?

Thanks!

there is a paper on one of the humbugs in culture, they had some limited success rearing them, certianly had some early larval history.

I assume you can access the journal search devices, so i would try both the scientific names for humbugs, which i have forgotten sorry. It could even be for trimacs, long time since i looked, I do have it somewhere in a printed version but would take me a couple of hours to find.

If you have no joy let me know and ill go digging after christmas, but you will need to remind me.

I worked with the larvae some time ago.Of all damsels,Dascyllus and Chromis are the most difficult,since they hatch very undeveloped,without pigmented eyes or functional mouth.
On the other hand,they produce thousand of larvae to work with! :wink:

Well Luis, maybe they are doable now after your work on first feeding !

Lets hope, these little guys are a long time favorite of mine.

Sure,Jake,but the problem with D.trimaculatus,or the similar hawaian D.albisella,is that they grow too big and aggresive and people return them to the LFS. :(
That´s why I chose this time D.aruanus.

How is it coming? I do want to try them, and for sure are going to have some in a reef tank. First of the month I am moving and as soon as the tanks(reef) are up and running will be stocking some in each tank,D. trimaculatus in one. There are a couple other species to try too, just because I have liked them for a long time.

What are you using to feed these little mawed naups?
