Breeding
Red bay snooks are substrate spawners so provide some flat rocks or slate to act as spawning sites. The eggs will be a pinkly colour when laid and they should hatch after 3-4 days. A week later the fry should be free swimming and can be fed on newly hatched brine shrimp.

Lifespan
The expected life span for Petenia splendida is 10 years.
