Is a 10gal tank too small for breeding? My fry's is starting to get big and seem like a 10 gal might be a bit small.

Yes, the 10g is too small.. I use 10gs for my breeding tanks, then I have multiple 30gs for the grow out period (moved from the breeding tanks when they start to get a bit bigger in size).. then you will need lots of jars to isolate the males once they start fighting each other.

would it be ok to have 2 10gal tank? i don't have anything bigger than 10gal tank and i don't want to buy a 30 gal it's too big and costly.

It's ok to use several smaller tanks as long as you keep up with the water changes - smaller= less fry and more frequent WC.

I'm confused by your statement here....so is 10g okay or no? I've used 10g for breeding no problems at all.

IMO/E-using 2-3 smaller tanks and separating the fry by size works well and even better in some cases-especially if you have a big range in fry size from the same spawn. And as Indjo posted...lots of water changes....

Sorry for the confusion.. I was meaning that a single 10g is too small for a grow out (depending upon size of spawn), as the poster mentioned they are getting too big for the 10g. The others had answered the other question about multiple 10s.. I didn't want to answer as I was not completely sure of the answer for that, just new it would be a bit more work.

But 10s are fine for breeding and raising the small fry for sure.

Does anyone know the ratio of being a male or female from a spawn? This is probably a silly question.
