You don't rinse the vinegar off?

You just go from the sides of the vinegar bottle directly into the tank?

It's only a small amount of vinegar and if you do regular water changes the amount of vinegar is negligible.

Great method! I'll have to use that the next time I breed.

I agree! I've been trying to figure out how to harvest them... I'm a complete failure with the coffee filter method as most VE fall through.

Nope. It doesn't affect the fry. A little vinegar won't harm a healthy spawn. :)

Thanks! I'm flattered to receive a compliment from an experienced breeder!

I see you use coconut vinegar.

Most people use apple cider vinegar.

I guess anything other than distilled is ok.

Do you need to add apple slices?

Does it really help? Or just make it messy in the long run?

The VE feed on something in the apple...yes it's needed.

I use 50/50 water and apple cider vinegar.
