They seem so closely related to Bangaii Cardinals, you would think they would be just as easy to raise. Confused
Good luck.
As I recall, you have raised a few other fishes, right?

Yes, I have raised other fish, but can always use suggestions/ideas. Pajamas have a platonic larval stage it takes about 30 days to meta. Male only holds them for about 8 days till they hatch. Rotifers for first 10 to 14 days.

Spawns on 12/14 and12/24 were gone after 4 days. Spawn on 1/3 gone after 7 days, maybe I was off a day on spawn. Male disappears for 2 or 3 days at a time so its hard to tell.
