The only P's I know that have been bred in captivity are, natt's, spilo's and spilo CF's (Brazil fish that look like medinai). Rhomb's bred in public aquariums and a man-made pond in Florida.

For Natt's:
Breeding them requires plenty of water changes 3 or 4 times a week, good filtration and good diet. Spirulina works as that is what I used for mine when they bred a couple years or so ago. Temp for my fish was 80F and it was in a 55g. Was only able to keep less than a 100 alive after the hatched. The other ones were eaten by parents and they ate each other up till just the larger one survived. By the time they was 2 inches only had about 2 dozen. So you will need plenty of tank space of you plan to raise more than I did. Filtration was by sump pump and box (home made). This always seems to work better for P breeding.
