what to breed?
ive got a uk10G tank sat doin nothin and im planning on setting it up and breeding somthing? i have bred guppies, platies and betas in this tank before so im planning on somthing else, cold or trop?
any ideas would be great?
Chichlids are always interesting to breed since they actually take care of their babies rather than eat them, maybe a dwarf chichlid like a blue or bolivian ram
A uk 10g tank is around 11 us gallons? GBR's are a fun and easy fish to breed, but at the same time the fry can be eaten by the parents.
I would go with Cory's if the tank is big enfu.
will blue rams take care of the babies?
yes they will matt
Neons, Sazzy.:checkedout: Who knows you end up with several neon babies.:love: If not, get a shoal of praecox. I had mine spawn every night for 3 months(before they succumb to columnaris).:crazy:
what are the proper tank requirements and tips on breeding cories i might want to do that since i have an extra 10 gallon.
Cory breeding requires a balanced tank but nothing special, a few live plants help and some caves for them to hide but most important, a little luck. I tried everything under the sun to try and get them to spawn for 7 weeks with no luck and then 2 weeks later they just did it all their own. Just be ready to remove the eggs and place them in anything to protect them from the parents because they will not only eat the eggs but will eat the babies.
I think a shrimp breeder tank is a good idea and is a lot of fun to see the little ones slowly mature and color up. Either Cherries or Ghost/glass shrimp would fit well.
yeah the praecox will pretty much take care of things on their own given decent water. they can pretty much be counted on to lay eggs practically every day. I'm in the process of setting up a 20 gallon tank for just that purpose actually. I already have the males, its just a matter of getting a few females to add to the school. They are one of the easier fish to breed seeing as how well-fed adults will generally ignore the fry.
thanx guys :D
