Agree that they are very social creatures and flaring is a good thing imo. prevents boredom great exercise. Its cool in my house at night so I put 1.9l in a heated tub and slip in a cut plastic divider so they cant see each other. The Turkey Baster may have been the most important invention of all time.

I will also note... If you were to use anything they couldn't see each other through they would actually become depressed from sudden isolation. That's the last thing you need :)

how do you heat the jars without floating them in the actual growout tank?

A few things you can do. I heat a room (remember the smaller the room with an automatic adjustable room heater is cheaper than a larger room). If living in tropical areas, it's easier. You can also heat a tub of water, and allow the jars to sit in the water (have it so they don't float with 3-6 inches of water depending on jar size and water quantity).

those are all great ideaswe're preparing our first spawn in the next few weeks and i was wondering how all the girls were going to have any room in a tank filled with cups for all their brothers.

I might actually switch to doing that once everything is set up right.

Similar to what I do.. I have jars and 32oz cups, kritter keepers that I place in tubs of water, etc..

Here are a few of my keepers - can see a couple cups in the back ground (working on barracks right now, both big and "mini" ones for the wall length heavy shelves) as I don't want so much "open" water in the tubs during summer months. I usually have IAL in there, but this was just after some water changes.
