After a long absence from breeding marine angelfishes, we are happy to announce that Frank Baensch has already begun to get Reef Culture Technologies back into gear. For a few years in the early 2000s Frank Baensch was a prolific breeder of several species of dwarf angelfish including some common species like flame and lemonpeel angelfish but also of several extremely rare species including the resplendent, debelius and nahacky angelfishes.
The resplendent angelfish pictured above is one of Frank’s little babies which we visited at the home of Jim Styme, the L.A. Fishguy, which we previously featured in a post on resplendent angelfish. We very much look forward to Mr. Baensch getting his broodstock ready for production as we can guarantee you that RCT will be aiming to breed the masked angelfish, Genicanthus personatus, and even the peppermint angelfish, Paracentropyge boylei, should he succeed in obtaining a pair. If anyone can do it, Frank can, and we look forward to tracking the successes of his marine angelfish breeding come back.
