The broodstock of this south Anatolian species was collected in Adana city and is with me since many years. The species is endemic to the lower Seyhan and Ceyhan drainages and is locally quite common. It is not threatened in nature. My stock is in the sixth generation in captivity; the original individuals had lived for four years. Garra culiciphaga matures with one year and most individuals spawn only two or three years and then become senescent. Therefore, I make some efforts to breed this species every year. It is really easy o breed. They spawn in dense vegetation and predate little on their eggs and larvae. Usually I do not separate the larvae from the adults. Each female spawn 2-3 times during summer between late May and September. Juveniles grow fast and when hatched early and feed well, they start to spawn in July or August of the next year. Juveniles of this attractive species have been given to several enthusiasts.
