Captive breeding / propagation

Scolopsis taeniata is easy to breed. There are offspring in the trade available. If you are interested in Scolopsis taeniata, please contact us at Your dealer for a progeny instead of a wildcat. You help to protect the natural stocks.

Husbandry

This demersal species occurs in coastal waters near coral reefs above sandy bottoms, and can occasionally be found in the lower reaches of rivers and estuaries, and therefore copes well with varying salinity levels.
According to a study conducted in the southern Persian Gulf, the estimated maximum age of the species is 5 years.
Scolopsis taeniata is short-lived, fast-growing, spawns twice a year and has a relatively high natural mortality rate.


This species has been falsely identified by some authors as Scolopsides rupellii (=Scolopsis vosmeri) or as Scolopsis phaeops (=Scolopsis frenata).
