I was out looking for Pirate booty the snack food for my daughter at Rit Aid. I am conditioning a pair and thought I should see what kind of containers they have. In the garden section I found this.
Its plastic and I checked it holds 4.5 Gal of water. I am so excited to use this. I tried once to breeding using a round large 18Gal bucket but the male I picked was not a good one and nothing happened. But I did love how the Round container made it much better for the female during the chase. In the 10 Gal the female gets cornered and it's awful to watch her get stuck in the corner and nipped. With the Round container I noticed it was less stressful on the female.
So I am very excited I found this big round bowl. I am conditioning my fish kind of like the Thai do They are in 1 Gal container getting Daily water changes and fed 2 to 3 times a day. I am going to condition for a week like this they try out my new Bowl. The fish I am breeding are From Thailand so this is how their parents were bred this is how they should be. It just makes sense.
