    The tag help out a lot if I remember to record all the data.
    Thing like male to female ratio.
    Number of hm.
    Body style
    Only time I bunch up the batch is that I know for sure what is what.
    Never mix the green with blue batch
    Never mix marble batch with anything
    Only time I mix it up.
    Is when I breed white and red
    Unless I breed white with a blue

    I usually put a little tag next to the breeding tank.
    The information that's on it.
    the pedigree and age of the male and female.
    Date of breeding and hatch.
    Food that I feed
    Water change
    Hour of light.
    But now.
    Nothing since all the fish are not breed by me
    I'll get back on track on the f2 breeding.
    I hate when fish don't breed true.
    Make it harder to predict the offspring and there offspring

    yeah i known when giant reach there full grown size.
    all they want to do is swim around and don't care about the other gender.
    have the size problem with my old male.
    i do feed them as much as they can eat.
    but at the same time i don't want them to be overweight.
    cause the male will become lazy.
    ok so i came to a conclusion.
    going to breed my babies in two week.

    The male seem like he max out already.
    Got him at the store.
    Yes a very rare find to get a hm giant from the store.
    Keeping him in a gallon jar.
    Going to feed him twice a day.
    6-10 worm a feed.
    Giant eat a lot.
    To see if there any change.
    At the same time I don't want to stun growth on my female.
    Breeding wasn't this hard.
    When I wasn't dealing with giant.

    Lol people in the us don't really use the metric system.
    Every time you give me in cm, I've always converted it to in.
    To figure out how big it is.
    That's the problem there.
    My hm giant boy only have 2.75 in body.
    I'm afraid that if I've hold back on the female.
    They might out grow the male.

    I with you on that....
    When a fish just go without a know cause.
    It's puzzling....

    Hey from your point of view.
    Do you breed in size or age.
    Was thinking about breeding my babies giants in two week.
    They should be a little over three month.

    I didn't start recoding my giant until they hit 9 week old.
    But that seem right.
    My giant didn't explode in size until they hit the fifth week.
    That's is kind of dispersing.
    I have the same problem with my big earxdt.
    One week I have over 100 and the next I drop down to 7.
    Don't see any dead bodies

    Some things do get pretty scary as you find out the TRUTH of things. I feel the same way. I usually am a really nosy person when it comes to things like nature, time, moon, history, ect.
