Abstract

In 1983 24 young were reared to maturity and in 1984 seven survived. Unfortunately in the following two years none of the young which hatched were reared. Manuscript submitted 27 October 1986 1 The Zoological Society o f London : Breeding the Common foureyed fish . tinhleps on ah leps 4 at the Stuttgart Zoo DIETER JAUCH Si.irntijic Assistant Zoologisch- Botnnischer Gartrn Willirlnza.

Among the most interesting of the fishes that a public aquarium can show to its visitors are the foureyed fishes Anahleps spp. These surface dwelling fish have, in effect, acquired a second living space by their ability to emerge temporarily onto the shores of the waters where they usually live.
