Looking forward to it. Thank you.

Norico: You can use heaters to keep temp stable and high during cold weather.

I usually keep females in small jars so they won't grow that big. That way I can breed her to a young male, if I have to.

They will adapt to pH. It's better to have higher but stable pH than have it fluctuate. My pH ranges around 8. If you're worried, add Indian Almond Leaves to lower pH. . . . not sure how to raise it though.

Inbreeding is often needed to get certain traits fixed into our line. Breeding father to daughter is easier than mother to son because of size. This is why I keep females in small jars. Breeding siblings is the easiest.

I just surprised I never heard PH 8. My water is PH7 and I use IAL.

I see size is important for them. My older female is not breeding with younger male. I did siblings once.

So, are you use well water ? Do you use conditioner ?


Thank you,

A cooler water change can induce breeding behavior (it mimics the beginning of the monsoon season), so start off with cool water and then slowly (over the course of a few days) bring the temp up to the desired degree before you release the female to spawn. Then keep the temp high throughout spawning and afterward. This works well for me anyway

I always use conditioner, and here the tap water from the sink is very good so I use that, but many people also use well water and that is fine too in most cases.
