Breeding blue rams HELP ME PLEASE
Hi, my blue rams just laid eggs in a community tank on a slab of flat rock. As the mother and father are both beautiful specimens of the breed, I am going to attempt to raise the fry. Here is the problem: I have no idea what I am doing and the eggs were laid in very hard water. The eggs were laid about 30 minutes ago, I moved the eggs (on the rock) into a breeding net. I am wondering if I should get some RO water and set the eggs up in there to hatch. For that matter I dont know if they are fertilized, how can you tell? I read one site suggesting setting up a 1 quart mason jar with RO water and then adding Hydrogen peroxide at very small amounts to provide O2, is this a good idea?
I have tried breeding rams myself and have posted on here before about it. I would hatch the eggs in a seperate tank with an airstrike almost on top of the eggs themselves with meth blue and a lil hydrogen peroxide mixed in. Kept the tank around 80F and had about a 90-95% hatch rate. I have yet to keep fry alive longer than a week however, not sure if its about my type of feeding or what, but good luck to you.
