    Do you Breed in 20 gal? Rather than a 10? I Have an empty 30 gal for a growout, Could I possibly spawn in there? My idea would be to fill up the tank only a few inches and use a home made divider to keep the pair in a section, so they don't lose each other, and once I take the male out, remove the divider.

    Hey. If I were to breed two masked dragon scales together would this result in scaling over the eye?

    is it the same as where u are
    the bigger the giant the longer the body
    body form is not so great, it look really long
    really bomb out
    only 5 egg hatch for the giant spawn

    The guppies are my little brother.
    None are quality but they're bred by color
    Yeah the guppy are getting fancier
    New breed just pop up crowntail guppy

    5 spawn at once
    That's going to be some work
    By the end of this month I'll want at least 4 giant spawning out
    Getting a pair or two in a week
    Yeah a few egg hatch out of my giant
    Don't know how many yet cause there is a lot of duckweed

    I've agree.
    Breeding betta is a challenge
    For old school n new breeder
    Tetra will breed if you have a school
    Cichlid I've never got them to breed
    Give up in the first year do to my little cousin wiping them out
    Guppy is the easiest fish to breed
    As long as you have enough food to feed them they'll breed n won't eat all there frys
    I've just barely start netting the fry in the last two week
    Now I'm close to be pushing a hundred fish
    With a dozen full grown female n keeping up the work
    I'll reach in the thousand by the end of summer

    Current work out don't usually work for me.
    The male usually stay at the bottom
    Female chase or bucket workout( small jar inside with a male with another male outside running outside with the current)
    My old days with a very aggressive male
    We usually spare them for 15 minute before breeding

    Yeah that's true.
    If it was that easy it will get over produce

    Form n size is harder to maintain
    Work with it first
    If the color get out of hand u can always take the simple way out n cross it to marble

    Thing I'm going to try
    1)Forster the egg to another male that have a nest.
    -Slowly drop the egg under the male nest with a clear tub
    Down fall to this
    I might lost two spawn
    Hard to get two pair to spawn at the same time
    Train my male
    To build up endurance
    To be a more active fish/which I hope will become a more productive dad
    Down fall
    Will be come more aggressive
    If these fail I'll go back to the drawing board

    Will let try out new method to find something to work
    For sure a male giant can't eat all the egg
    If this spawn fail
    I'll try fostering the egg with regular male to see if it work out

    The same hear
    Have the white flag in one hand n the other setting up another tank to breed
    Y can't the giant be the same as there smaller cousin
