    Adult E. Tauvina are reared in large concrete tanks. The unstimulated or natural spawning of the matured fishes starts in late April or early May when the average water temperature reaches 25 degree C. The fertilized eggs measure 0.77 mm in diameter while the hatched larvae are 1.4 - 1.5 mm in total length. The development of the characteristic dorsal and ventral spines is observed. The adults spawning behaviour, the growth and feeding of the larvae is briefly described.
