hey im new here, been kinda looking around and i like this place alot of information. well about 5 months ago i started breeding platies, fell in love with them and now im trying my luck with guppys. i was just wondering if you guys have any tips or tricks or anything that would help me...please be nice...anyways thanks in advance.
current setup guppies 20 gal tall live plants (wisteria, some tall plants i forgot the name of, java fern, anachris)
heater set at 81 along with dechlorinated water with salt added
platies-30 gallon long heater set at 83 with same water conditioning and of course both have filters and the same plants.
i also have a spare 45gal corner hex tank i have to get a filter and some heatersfor....i plan to raise my guppy fry in a ten gallon with a sponge filter and as the get bigger cull out the lesser ones and raise the better ones in the 45 gallon. as far as my platies go i put them in a breeder net until theyre big enough to live in the tank with the rest (i have 6 adults) and i tend to just give them away to friends/coworkers when they get bigger, except for a few ive kept for their oddly bright colors.
