I did not expect someone would be so excited of a new forum.

Musho, I think you miss this thread.

Take my word for it...I'm going to spend time moving threads about breeding.

Ok so I'll post the information here and lock the other one you created.

If you can buy another tank, place two layers of marbles as substrate and make sure water is at half level. Then place a shoal of danios inside the tank. 6 is preferred. Males are generally slimmer. Females are plump and almost full of eggs.
With water at half level, the eggs fall faster and slip between the marbles thus predation from adults is averted.
Adults will quickly eat the eggs as soon as they scatter them hence my advice for half-level of water.

Remove the adults after they are done with spawning. Then add Methylene Blue in the tank to protect the eggs from fungus. Aerate the water.
Prepare some brine shrimps or buy liquifry which is available in the lfs.

If not, prepare a hard-boiled egg, then scoop the egg yolk and suspend it in the water in a jar.
*Use this method only when fry is free-swimming.

The fry when hatched have yolk sacs and will stick to the area where they have hatched. They will be free-swimming after a few days in which time they'll search for food.
Provide some riccia fluitans(plants). they harbor microorganisms which serves as food for the fry.

ok a new question, do you need to feed the fry when there not free swimming? or do the egg yolks take care of that?

No need until they used up the egg sac. Feed them only when they are free-swimming.:)

It's good to start feeding just before they are free-swimming to make sure they are getting enough to eat. I'd start at about day 4 or 5, which is a couple days before free-swimming.

ok, i cant be bothered making brine shrimp and my mom is starting to get tired of me doing so much with my fish and spending so much so hatching brine shrimp isnt easy. I'll either buy fry food or use egg yolk. Do i use hard boiled egg yold or soft boiled egg yolk?

Hard boiled.....

Then squish it in your fingers in a cup or bowl of water and spot feed with a syringe or small turkey baster. Remember, don't overfeed or your water parameters will go sour.
