Pangasius Suchi has as far as I known not been breed naturally in aquariums.

It is difficult to distinguish the male from the female pangasius when they are young because they do not exhibit secondary sex characteristics. It is only when they are mature which usually takes 3 years in a tropical country can one distinguish them. The males when pressed geently at thee belly will release milt while the females will have distended belly when gravid (pregnant)

I never really bother distinguishing thee male from thee female arowanas. We just place them in a community hoping that there will be males and females. Arowanas are mouth brooders like tilapia. we simply collect the eggs from theeir mouth and put them in incubators to develop. One female will produce about 80-100 eggs. The eggs are quite big and resembles a yellow corn kernel.

Yes, Pangasius are induced to spawn. In other words, they are injected with hormones for them to ovulate (release their eggs). The eggs are stripped in a small basin. they are then fertilized by stripping thee male and mixing the eggs with thee milt of the male. The eggs are then placed in incubators.
