Hi all! I'm a bit new to the site but I've been lurking around, doing homework, making sure I'm prepared for the adventure I'm about to embark on, and I'm ready! I'm doing this mainly as a genetics study, and because i love these crazy little fish.
I currently have a sorority of 7 females, and i have four males.
So i chose a female, this plump, already eggy crowntail girly. She's a rich navy color with a red wash on her lower fins. And then my dark blue butterfly half moon male, Ink'd. He has had a bit of fin damage from a move i had, he got stressed :c .
So currently they are in seperate tanks, with heaters (since my house is freezing always) and im feeding them pellets and frozen bloodworms three-four times a day, its so far been only a day. They seem happy thus far.
My spawn tank is a 10g with a divider, a small section for the female and a large for the male. I have in there 7 live plants (a few anubis and some ferns and so on.) terra cotta pots, and a plastic plant or two. Also a heater and a styrofoam cup for the bubble nest. I hope im doing everything right!
I'll post pictures later. But tomorrow im going to the pet store- what should i pick up? im on a bit of a budget but let me know!!
