Salamanders, A New Adventure

I thought I would keep progress in my keeping and breeding of this pair. they are currently conditioning. I have always wanted to create a salamander line.

The Setup (Temporary)

They are next to each other with a relatively high lighting unit, completed with live plants and seachem flourish. The tanks are .75 gallons with every other day 100% water changes. with a card in the middle that will be removed for 5-10 minutes every day. They are being fed a mix of Atisons Betta Pro, and mix of frozen Blood Worms/Brine Shrimp





LOG ENTRY ONE : JULY 18th, 2012

Feeding time

Right now they are being fed a mix bloodworms and brine shrimp. Along with Atisons Betta Pro pellet food





The Pair

This Pair was derived from Thailand. The male was from Aquastar71, and the Female was from Sirinutbetta on aquabid. I had a great experience with both sellers :)




De-Carding time

Every day I remove the little "blocker" in between the tanks for 5-10 minutes so the pair can see each other. I keep a card there so the pair doesn't get accustomed to seeing each other







Thank You For Looking At My Thread :)

LOL. mine will start jumping around the tank and swimming frantically for any sort of food or when he sees the female. I love this fish so much. He has a great personality.... And.... yes, they are all weirdo's in there own "special" way

Sooo pretty! You will get really good results with those parents.
I like the anal fin on that female!
When will you be introducing them?
I'm very anxious to breed my salamanders but the first attempt was a failure.
Best of luck with the spawn!!!
