For breeding Panamanian sturisoma can not use the aquarium spawning. The pair, ready to spawn, begins to clean the stone slab or snag, which will lay eggs. Females lay up to 200 eggs, after which the male fertilizes them and remains to care for.

After the appearance of the larvae, the male ceases to care for the offspring, they can be transferred to a spacious aquarium without soil and looked after. The larvae turn into fry after 2-3 days, they are fed with artemia, cyclops, rotifers, vegetable food.
