hi, just wanted to set up a little log that im going to try to keep updated as i go through my first ever spawn! the pair im breeding are both halfmoons i got from Chard56 on aquabid. and without further ado, heres the couple!
the boy, Hades:
the girl, Pixie:
and the tank, as it is now:
so, right now i am conditioning them both, they are out of sight of each other, and im feeding them frozen bloodworms, frozen brine shrimp, and pellets, feeding 3 times a day. im thinking that if they both look good on wednesday, ill put hades in the breeding tank for a few hours and then introduce pixie, in a jar. and ill see what happens from there :)
as for the tank itself, all i have in there right now is a heater and a couple IALs. pretty soon their will be a dozen small marimo balls (yes, a literal dozen lol) as well as some fake plants, and a few little places to hide for the girl. im still not sure if im going to put a styro cup in their yet, i might just let it happen on the leaves or find a floating plant if i can, well see.
if anyone is wondering, i will be feeding them a variety of foods (all of which i purchased on aquabid from a user named Fishguy_1955) the food is an artificial plankton/rotifers blend, spirulina powder, decapsulated brine shrimp eggs, and a blended starter meal that he makes himself. oh, and a culture of micro, banana, and walter worms. i plan on feeding about 4 or 5 times a day, with a water change about 30 minutes after feeding.
im really excited to get started! if you have any suggestions or comments, feel free :)
