This species showed up in one of our first shipments from Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in very low numbers and we haven’t seen any larvae in any of the other subsequent shipments since.  A testatment that not all species in public aquaria spawn equally.  However, it goes through a beautiful juvenile phase, as you can see from the picture below, and is one of the favorites at the lab.
