Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Bleeker, 1853

Best Thanks to Eric for using the Picture:

Pseudochromis tapeinosoma is an unusual and seldom seen dottyback that has made its way into the aquarium trade. We’ve already seen a handful of rare and luxurious imports from the Indo-Pacific region.

It’s no surprise then, with the rich biodiversity of the Indo-pacific, that the Tapeinosoma Dottyback hails from this region. More specifically, it ranges from Southern Japan to Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. It can also found on the West Coast of Thailand.
