I just want to know what you guys think of my plans. It sounds awesome to me to breed a nice turqoise HM line! Currently this are my plans:
Getting a 60ish L community tank. At first put a male in it. Later (when Ive found a nice female) I want to let him breed (and give the female to my roommate) in another tank (40ish L), a little warmer, low water, little more plants etc. When they've breeded I jar the female to give to my roommate (he might be breeding as well soon btw). When the fry gets free swimming I might let the male do some culling (some sort of natural selection). A little later Ill put the male back in the community tank. Lateron I want to put 3-4 females (sisters) in the communitytank with the dad. This way I hope to get a beautiful communitytank with a male and 3-4 females who dont eat eachother alive.
Ill have to see what ones of the spawn I can jar and pass to my roommate or other people.
How does that sound? Shoppinglist:
net? I prefer to use a small jar for transport in order to not damage any fins.
lamp (with soft light) Because I'll keep my breedingtank under the communitytank.
topless colabottle (2L) to let the female get used to the male in.
Live plants for the breedtank
Pellets (might grind to feed spawn)
bloodworms or any other living food for conditioning
Critters who will keep the bottom clean, like snails or low zone fish.
How about my setup? I am really curious what you guys think of it!
