Description of life cycle and mating behavior A prolific breeder. The courtship ritual is frenetic; several batches of about 20 eggs are spawned among submerged marginal vegetation during the course of about 30 minutes. The eggs sink, and hatch in about 36 hours. The free-swimming fry are very delicate and sensitive to water conditions.
