Well. I think in the next 2 weeks I will be prepared to start my first spawn. I'm getting very excited, but having a hard time picking a pair. (of course after it is decided I will make a thread purely about the spawn)
So here are the options, ladies first!
I also have a Platinum White Female, Mustard Gas Female, 3 females from NIB as well. <33 I can post pictures of those if you think they might go along with one of the males below better.
The boys I'm considering currently.
He's the spawn sibling to the first female. I'm considering breeding to his spawn sibling or the Plat. White female I have.
Here's my Marble Copper/Red/Dragon male. Considering breeding to the black marble female or one of NIB's fry I have.
And my blue dragon with bf pattern, he has a few red spots though. Considering breeding him with my blue marble female, plat. white, or the black marble.
Ok. So I don't quite have my set up, ready yet, but I'm going to do the spawn in 30G tank, either section part of it off or float a Tupperware container inside until, then take female out, and after fry are free swimming, slowly release them into the bigger tank. The tank will be have a lot of floating plants, and I'm considering doing an outside spawn, your thoughts on this? And I'm also thinking of leaving the male in the spawn the entire time. (Of course if he seems to still have energy, isn't eating eggs, etc) Good or bad idea with first spawn or should I just see how it goes?
Food- I've ordered some Atison's Betta Starter for the fry. And there will be infurosia from the plants. I plan to order BBS or Microworm cultures, but which is more nutritious? I've read on different websites some is better, and vice versa, so what would you say?
Weeelll Just some last questions before I get all prepared, tell me what you guys think. Yay.. After the decision I shall post a separate thread including pictures of course. But I need to condition them before this goes down. =D
