Default Wait time with WC breeding

Just curious how long did it take your Wild Caught Cyphos to breed once you received them.

My WC mobas took about 6 months to start successfully pumping out lots of beautiful fry

A lot will depend on how old they are when you get them. Males typically need to be around 3 years old and females usually 18 months to two years to become sexually mature but there have been exceptions.

Thanks for replies. Female Mobas 2.5 - 3" , how old can they be? I know there are lots of factors, but what would be average age?

This is just a guess but I would say under a year, idk...maybe 8 months? But like you said yourself, there are so many factors it's impossible to make an accurate guess.

Mines took about 10 months but now they're on a ROLL! Fry swimming and a new female holding! And 1 has held full term so far!
