My older female

Hi there,

My female fish is 1.10 years old. She never breeding. I tried a few mens, but she didn't like them. So, I want to know she can still breeding ?

Please teach me.

Thank you,

If a female is over 1 year old,i would't breed her.
She is too old for that now.
You can get some new females and try.

Depends on the female... I had one I bred right until she was 2, because of her spunk. I used her then to teach my males to breed, even if they failed, at least they had some experience behind them. The males I would worry more about age, because they have to tend to the nest. The female however, though playing an equal role, she is removed once spawning is done and back to being fed well... Whereas the father is left in the tank between 1-5 days, sometimes longer. It's exhausting for the male!

Know YOUR fish, know THEIR limits. I can guarantee most of my females are reaching 8-13 months.

Have to agree, depends on the female. But generally you can breed them to around 2yrs of age, as Sena had mentioned.

if they're over a year old, doesn't increase the likelihood of genetic deformities in the fry?

I know she is too old, but I would like to have her children. She's so fine, but she didn't success breeding. That's why I asked.
