New Ideas?
 
I have bread all types of livebearers and i think i have gotten the hang of it. I want to try and breed something new and i have only one idea. I have cories and have read a few threads on the forum on how to bread those. I want to try the next level of breeding fish. I have a 37 galloon tank that has a few fish in it but has a lot more room, and a 10 that is currently not being used but it is running at 78F i would love to hear your ideas, I would want community fish that way i don't have to worry about setting up new tank(s). ANYTHING WOULD BE HELPFUL!!!:-D
Thanks,

Cam

I say please don't bread them unless you have a good dipping sauce recipe LOL.

Obvious typo but it made me laugh after a crappy day :) Good luck with whatever you decide.

You'd have the most breeding success if you set up the 10g souly for shrimp.

Most shrimp like Temp between 65-75F pH from 6-7.5 and KH 3-10 ranges. Now you don't want cross breed shrimp, so here's a chart that will help you understand which Shrimp you can safly house together and which won't work cause they'll cross breed Dwarf Shrimp Compatibility Chart - Freshwater Shrimp - TheShrimpFarm.com

If you have to have fish and want to breed shrimp. For starters you need a fish that will be fine in a 10g then obviously choose a fish that does get along with your water parameters and last but not least chose a SMALL fish that's peaceful and won't see the shrimp as a snack and heavily plant the tank so they can hide the baby's with different Grasses, Moss, Stargrass etc
