Don't forget a heater.. which needs to be set at 82-84F.

Unsure what type of plants those are..

And yes, that is a male plakat

The plants can't create enough infusoria for the fry and would rather pollute the water (if the tank is not cycled). It is best that you grow infusoria in a jar so you would get them populated. After that, you can feed them with an eyedropper (a few drops).

Look into growing infusoria.

Good luck!

Can leave the plants in the tank.. they help detoxify the water and make it cleaner/safer for the fry.. I wouldn't count solely on infusoria though as it is, make sure to have BBS and if possible, some micro cultures to feed as first foods for back up. They will only eat the infusoria for a very short time, so personally I ended up not bothering with it and just use plants to keep the water clean for them.

I would lower the water level to around 4". What are your breeding goals?
