Does anyone know at what age multifasciatus begin breeding?



I’ve never bred them, so here’s hoping someone with experience steps up.

I think once they’ve got their stripes, they’re nearly ready.

If they’re with parents / adults, they may mature more slowly.

One estimate is 10-months.

I couldn't give a definitive answer, but I will tell you this. I bought a group of six of them last May 2021, they had babies not long after being in the tank, I noticed babies a month or so after. Those babies have started producing babies now. It is hard to tell exactly when they start laying eggs because of them laying in shells, I just watch for little fry start appearing.
