I 've always like this species, admiring them from afar, having never kept them myself. It strikes me that most specimens are imports, or at best farm bred in Indonesia.

Perhaps my research is deficient, but from what I've encountered so far, it seems not many folks have much luck breeding these guys with any regularity. Are there issues with husbandry(hmmm..might be a factor..)that have proven difficult? Or is it more a case of their natural history and habitat preferences still less than thoroughly examined/understood? Perhaps it's a matter of obtaining healthy specimens, untraumatized by capture/importation process. Or maybe I'm simply not talking to the people that successfully reproduce this species...

Any thoughts or ideas would be swell!

Guy
