A verry beatiful species that i really want to add in my fishroom.
Does anyone know the incubation time for this species?

Generally in the 5 month range. Brian has a lot more experiance with this fish than I do and maybe he will give us some more insight.

I would say that 5 months is the minimum and anything from there up to a year or more is likely. As with all Nothos that have very long incubation times, the development of the eggs tends to be erratic so they will usually hatch a few at a time with successive wettings. So redry the peat and wet again after 6-8 weeks or so and keep doing that until there are no more hatching. Don't discard the peat until you are absolutely convinced that there are no eggs remaining.
