So, the most... well, the SECOND most expensive part in breeding is the containers for males. You need 100+, I believe (Hey, part of the spawn will be female and can be kept together!)
Well, my family are HUGE time soda drinkers. Like, they go through anywhere between 6... and 36 cans a week. Well, someone at IBC reccomended maybe trying 2 liter soda bottles for the males. I was wondering if it would work? I mean, after they've been cleaned out and stuff. If I use them I plan on doing every other day 100% (Don't wanna do daily 100% with all those fry lol but is that enough?) And I also plan on making them a lot easier to clean.
I was thinking of cutting off the top and flipping it inward. That way I'll have a lid (partially plugged up hole if neccessary) and airhole. Plus when I do water changes, I can just pull off the top, dump the whole thing in a clean 5 gal bucket, wipe it, fill it in another 5 gallon bucket, net the male, and get started on the next one (treated water of course).
Oh, in case it wasn't obvious, I plan on removing the label and cap. I made a little diagram of what I'm planning to do with the lid on paint.... will it work? (Note: I live in Hawaii and will be spawning in the summer)
