need a little direction :-)
I have a ten gallon tank I would like to use to breed shrimp or any kind of live food for my oscar and other fish. I'm wondering what would be easiest for me (a beginner) to breed? Are there any good articles that are easy to understand out there that I could read? :D
Depending on the species of fish you are looking to breed, you can, generally, find answers right here on the forum. Since you intend to use the young as feeders, I would recommend livebearers such as guppies, mollies, swordtails, or platys. Most people who start with these fish will often find themselves in a situation of what to do with all of the fry. This is a good thing if you are using the young as food. Any questions, just ask.
hey so i actually found a plastic in-tank breeder thing... don't know if you've ever seen one but it's apparently better than a net breeder because it completely isolates the baby fish from the mother. then when she's done giving birth you can remove her, remove the grate that was between her and the babies, and then the babies have a space to grow until they're big enough to be around the other fish and not get eaten! it's really cool i'm excited to try it out. any tips for when i go to buy the guppies or whatever? should i get guppies?
