Nothobranchius ugandensis (Wildekamp,  1995)

DIFICULTY: Intermediate

AVAILABILITY: Uncommon, but in the hobby

INCUBATION: 3-4 Months

BREEDING TECHIQUE:  N. ugandensis is bred using the basic Notho technique of providing a container of peat moss and harvesting it on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.  This species tends to weaken with age and may reach a point where eggs are no longer viable

Eggs are stored semi-damp.  Fry should hatch in 24 hours and will accept new-hatched brine shrimp immediately.
