So I have decided I am going to take on the challenge of breeding here sooner than later. I have a few questions now though. I figure I will just use this thread for all the questions I know will be coming up.
My major question is this. How long after getting the female, QTing and adjusting her to her new home can you begin conditioning? I have a female CT on order that I wish to breed with my boy, providing she is in fact the one I want. I put in an order for a Silver/Plat dragon CT female with my LFS. Providing they can get her in and she is healthy and happy. Do the standard QT and get her adjusted to a new tank after QT. How long should I wait to condition?
I know Conditioning can take several weeks, plus there is then introduction time between the pair providing they accept each other. I would personally like to breed in the next few months so that the fry are not so young when it gets reheheheeaally cold here. Of course I will be breeding indoors and they will have a heater.
Question two. I have noticed it seems a lot of people do not feed the male while they are in the fry tank. Why is this?
