The truth about Altums
First post here but I'm actually quite experienced, believe it or not. I am considering getting Altums, but have been a little concerned about the lack and inconsistency of info on the species.
I've looked around on the web and there seems to be a lot of varying information on altums, about their habitat, sensitivity, and especially on whether they can be captive bred or not. Some say they are rarely bred, others say it has never been done at all. Do you know why altums are so difficult to breed? Or is that just a mystery?
Does anyone know of confirmed altum breedings? Or know anyone who has bred them personally?
Also, do you know if the heavy importation of the fish is damaging the natural population in south America?
