Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Cuvier, 1828

Susceptibly: Very transport-sensitive and delicately during accustomisation. Then again with good feeding very durable.
Social Behaviour: Lives in groups rather than swarms. Peaceful against other inhabitants.
Tank: Needs a well structured tank with hiding places. Well suitable for reef tanks.
