I have 5 zebra danios in my 20 gallon tank and i have an empty 10 gallon tank that i can use to raise fry. Any tips? I dont know much about breeding so here are somethings i would like to find out
Food to feed fry, i know baby brine shrimp are good but is their anything easier. I have lots of frozen food, wafers, pellets, and flakes.
How long does it take for the babies to get old enough to sell them to my LFS or put them in my tank.
Whats the average survival rate of the babies (i know danios have 200-300 eggs)
I have posted ages ago.
danios are "faithful to their mate" sooo, im guessing one male/female pair each? 2m/2f? that sorta thing? yeah that would be best for the zebras....so ive read
I have bred zebra danios in the past, and found that they needed no encouragement whatsoever. Often I didn't realise I had fry in the tank until doing a gravel vac and the dirty water came out full of fry (I remember once having over seventy fry from one bucket).
They can be very difficult to spot when newly hatched, and what I did was put them in another tank and fed for the first couple of weeks on a product called Liquifry.
I then moved on to crushed flakes and then other foods when they were large enough.
I found that I had a high survival rate - just watch you don't become over-run with them :)
Will have to close this thread.:)
