Okay so I'm starting to condition Pearl and Merlin. I still don't know if I'm using Pearl yet, but I'm conditioning her just in case. Like I said before, if I win the auction on Aquabid, I'll be breeding Merlin with the new female. Which I'm looking for names if there are any suggestions. Anywho, I am conditioning them a new way, they're in a 10 gallon set up like breeding but it's divided. It looks like I'm using a new girl anyways, so I'm not worried about Pearl. The female should be almost ready for breeding so I want to get Merlin prepared. If I somehow happen to come around one more tank soon, I may breed Pearl also. =D
Today I got, a heater (from a freecycler, so for free), a 10 gallon filter (which I have questions about), and I ordered some microworms from ebay which should be here in a few days. I only payed $4.25 for them! But yeah, so I set up the breeding tank with the filter & the heater and I have Merlin and Pearl in it. I have some pics. I have some questions too. But I'll post the pics first.
Set up for now, the home in the middle wont be there when I set up for breeding.
The filter I got
Okay here's my questions. I don't know about that filter. I can't change the flow and it looks kinda strong to keep in there with the fry. Do you think I could slow it somehow, or when I breed should I leave the divider in there?? I just think the fry could swim through it. I dunno, opinions??
I also wanted some help with microworms so I'm not completely clueless when they get here. So my other questions are, how do I culture them and make more? Anyone have some sites I could look at so I can get the supplies to set everything up?? Thanks guys. I just want EVERYTHING right this time around.
