There's this one girl I know and she is attempting her first spawn today, so I went over to her house earlier, and she has a fine breeding setup:
5-inch water lvl
tight-fitting hood, lights
Anyways, she has these 2 opaque HM's, very nice looking breeders. I asked what she was conditioning them on and she said frozen bw. and i was like, and? she said that that was all she had, and she said that it'll be fine and the female will swell with eggs. I told her that she should've added a bit more variety, live and frozen. so the girl replies that her parents wont let her buy anymore food or something. Anyways, she plans to feed the breeders 5 times a day, about 2 worms per feeding for 2 weeks. She wont be feeding them anything else but the occasional freeze-dried bw (if she can find them).
In my experiences i have never fed my breeders just 1 type of food for conditioning. Will this be enough and okay? Also my females swell with eggs only when given live foods. And the girl says that her parents most definitly WILL NOT let her have any form of live "beasties" in the house. I'm at a loss here- If you've had sucess, plz do tell.
