Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Elacatinus louisae are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Elacatinus louisae, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Elacatinus louisae, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Very special thanks for the first photo of Elacatinus louisae to Cindy Abgarian, Michigan, USA.
Cindy has taken the photo of the Spotlight goby 12 years ago on the north wall of Grand Cayman, Caribbean, at 85 feet depth.
