Tank Mate Compatibility: Best left to a species only tank.
Masked Julie Breeding & Spawning: Cave spawners, the already reclusive julies may seem to disappear altogether when guarding a clutch of eggs. Relatively small groups of fry are coupled with fairly consistent spawns; the older fry often help raise and protect their younger siblings, creating a colony feel to the tank. As adolescents, however, they may be kicked out by their parents and must be removed if the tank is too small to contain the entire family.
Determining Masked Julie Sex: Females are often larger than males and often plumped with eggs. In adults, venting may reveal the longer genital papillae of females, but the species is basically monomorphic.
Aquarium Region: This species likes to stay near caves so the middle to bottom region of the tank is preferred.
