Scorpions Breeding??

Postby Shovie » Sat 24 Jan, 2015 5:11 pm

I have a pair of Leaf Scorpionfish (Taenianotus triacanthus), lately one of them has been showing off to the other changing colour shades etc. But the interesting thing is the past week the other one looks really fat as if she is pregnant.​​ Ive been trying to do some research of scorpions breeding in captivity but have found very little. So i just wanted to see if anyone on here has had any experience or knows someone who has that would be great!!

Whilst i have no experience breeding them i have kept lots of them scorpions and anglers are my favorite fish.

I have heard of them breeding in captivity before but to my knowledge no fry have been successfully raised.

Tagging along, be sure to post some pics and document as much info as possible
So sorry officer.... i wasnt aware tangs needed so much space :/

:withyou:

I'm definitely interested to see how it progresses. Have you taken any documentation so far?

ill start documenting them this all as caught me unaware i was not expecting this at all.
The female has been big now for nearly 2 weeks without any change but i have not seen the pair apart since.
The male is still changing hes colour shades.
