Fish Breeding Help
Ok i have a 10 gal. tank with a Red wag-tail Platy that is pregnant. a Tiger Barb, 2 daniglo's, a botton feeding algae eater and a painted glass tetra, 2 facy guppies that are pregnant. 1 of them you can see the eyes of the babies and its been like that for about 1 1/2 weeks. the other Guppy is really fat. i used to be able to see the eyes but cant anymore. she is really pink in that area now. is she still pregnant. And my red wag-tail Platy has been looking like she has been pregnant for over a month now and i havent been able to notice the eyes of the fry in her and i have heard gestation period is supposed to be 28 days but a month and a half is a little odd right?
how will i know when to move her to a breeding net. i dont want my Tiger Barb or other fish to eat the fry.
what signs do i look for? is there any major sign that i can notice and say oh crap time to put her in the birther. is there anything that will delay them from having them.. should i put 1 or both guppies in the net now and see if that helps them have the fry?
i havent had a aquarium since i was 5. im 21 now and i have never bred fish. but i would like to know how and what to look for. and i dont have a spare tank and cant get one to use for the little fry so they gonna have to stay in the net
I'm having the same problem! My Molly looks pregnant, put her in a net yesterday but just took her out now because I feel cruel, haven't a clue if she is defo pregnant but don't want others to eat her fry if she is! Take a look at the pictures on my post :-)
