The pair will normally spawn in the early morning, laying a few eggs over the period of the breeding season. Once laying is complete the parents should be separated from the eggs. After 2 weeks, the eggs should hatch and once the fry are free swimming they can be fed on Infusoria or crushed flake.

Short description

A heavily planted tank is required for Pseudomugil connieae with plenty of hiding places, the addition of floating plants will also make them at ease.
