    I've been tossing around the idea of attempting to breed Jaguar Catfish. I don't have any yet and I still have lots of research to do.

    Am I just following a long list of tried and failed attempts or is there just little interest in breeding this fish that no one is trying?

    lol, am I crazy for wanting to try?
    30g: 2x dwarf gouramis, 2x blue gouramis, 9 neon tetras, and one pleco.

    75g: just started cycling. Thinking about rainbows and black orange-eye tiger shrimp.

    I know PlanetCatfish.com has no records of breeding this catfish. So I'm wondering is it just because people fail or is it that no one's interested?

    if a reputable site like planetcatfish lists "no reports of breeding", that means that nobody anywhere has been able to get the fish to breed in captivity and reported their success. Generally this means that the specific conditions (tank setup, water parameters, special situations like a simulated rainy season, etc) required to get the fish to spawn are unknown and/or have never been successfully duplicated.

    This is not to say that you will never get the fish to spawn. It just means that you'll need to figure out something that nobody else in the published world has yet.

    I've seen cats listed as "no record of breeding" on PCF and then have seen posts where people have successfully documented breeding that very fish. Their Cat-A-Log is a great resource but not always 100% up to date.

    I would so a few searches on that forum and see if anyone actually has been successful. I'm sure someone has tried somewhere.
    "The Dumpster Tank" 26g flat back hex - Betta albimarginata, corydoras, checker barbs, pork chop rasbora

    "Nano Fish Tank" 20g long - Celestial Pearl Danios, microrasboras, Corydoras habrosus

    "Mbuna Tank" 75g - Ps. saulosi, I. sprengerae, M. pulpican, M. joanjohnsonae

    "Time Out Tank" 29g - dominant male Cynotilapia sp. "hara"

    Ok. That helps me figure out what I'm up against.
    I'll just have to research their natural environment and see if I can duplicate it.

    The Jaguar catfish has been bred in aquariums. I hava a friend that has bred them. I do however not think that anyone properly documentet the breeding process. You would not be a fool to try to breed them but you have to be up for a challange because they are far from easy to breed. They will require very good conditions as well as triggering to spawn. My friend brought the temperature down and the pH to far below normal to trigger them to spawn. Regular rain triggering in other words.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Why don't you try it? You could put a bucket out for rainwater, then put that in the tank. That might trigger them.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    Im not posotive on this, but I wouldn't do that, can't rainwater have chemicals in them and could be acidic, you can try and 'recreate' rainfall though in your tank.
