Captive breeding / propagation

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

Sind für ein normales Heimaquarium einfach zu gross, deshalb sollte man sie lieber in der Natur bewundern, oder halt in einem sehr grossen und vor allem hohen Becken halten.
