Easy fish to breed
Hey I'm a new fish breeder I have a cold water tank with 4 fan tails. I was wondering which fish I should get to start breeding. Thanks. And are these fish readily avaible at stores
Sorry to sound like a noob
hey there, all livebearers r pretty easy to breed, but u have to have the room for the fry if u intend to keep them all, as they produce between 5 and 50 fry every month!!! u must have a ratio of 1male to 3 females(at least) so the male doesnt stress the females to death. depends on ur taste which fish u want, have a look at guppies, platies, mollys and swords. most are widely available at most fish stores, good luck .
:D Thanks for that what I needed in a nut shell :D
OoOooo one more thing
How can I tell livebearers apart from female and male ?
males have a gonopodium (penis)
females are usally larger
this counts for all of the above
you do know that these are tropical fish and need heater?
that all depends on ur room temp. i kept guppies in a non heated tank for 2 years b4, and the temp was 70-72. (they got eaten in the end) :( but they prefer warm water, at around 77-78 ish, if i were u id get a seperate tank to breed as u will slowly max out ur tank with the waste, sorry if u have posted elsewhere but wat size is ur tank?
:) Ye I understand there warm water :) I have a 3ft Tank now with fan tails But What I planning on doing is getting a new tank about 2 ft and puting y fan tails in that and getting a heater for my 3ft one :) I do like fan tails But arnt exactly advertures.
dont move the fantails, im my understanding the 3 feet tank is around 30-50 gallons which is barely if not enough for 4 goldfish, you can keep them in there as long as you have double filtration. Make the 2 feet (20 gallon high tank) a guppy breeder tank
