Breeding african bumblebee catfish

Has any one ever bred bumble bee catfish before? I have one female who is extremely fat and a male who is very slender. What should I look out for. Signs that they are spawning or have spawned. Water requirements? Anything. I'm pretty excited.


Thanks

There's no African bumblebee catfish. You mean the SA or Asian? I have 2 SA and to the best of my knowledge they're impossible to sex and there is little to no info on breeding behavior.

Check planetcatfish.com for proper ID and spawning. They have bred in aquariums, though not often.

In the poster's defense, I've seen African Bumblebee Catfish mentioned on planetcatfish.com (Microsynodontis batesii • Mochokidae • Cat-eLog), though previously had only read about Asian and South African. I have 3 of the South American and love these fish!!

Either way, let us know what happens!
