I've been breeding 2 years, and I've been very sucessful, but.. I've never had a really amazing
grow out tank! So I've looked into a few others, and I want to know if this is a good idea, (the tank will be 10 gallons, I know, not much of a grow out, but it's just to seperate half the fry until they get a little bigger and can be moved to the 20 gallon grow out)
Here's the plan:
- 10 gallon, heated, sponge filter, complelty full of water
- I'll have java moss as a live plant..
Here's some questions,
Should I get any other type of plant, other than the Java Moss?
I heard cherry shrimp do not bother fry, but ghost shrimp do.. Is this true? Could I use either type of shrimp? Should the shrimp be a certian size? How many should I get? Or, are shrimp not a good idea at all??
I want to get some trumpet snails, I know they are asexual, how many should I get? Is it true they do not harm fry & do a good job of cleaning algea?
Finally, Sand.. What kind do you suggest? How much do i need? and about how much is it? Is there any other subtrate I could try?
The fry will be moved around 1-3 weeks, depending on size. Then will be moved to a bigger tank around 7 weeks (depending on the ammount of fry & their size)
