Only discovered in August 2006, due to over collecting this species is now at risk of extinction in the wild. There have been successes in breeding them in captivity and they should now not be purchased without the intention to breed. Very little is known yet about their reproduction but they are egglayers, utilising a breeding mop or vegetation (such as java moss). The adults will eat any eggs or fry they find. The eggs are only slightly adhesive so are not guaranteed to stick to the moss or breeding mop when removed to a fry tank.
