I am reading up on that right now Mernin, thanks for the info though. I am still planning on breeding my CT boy, I just want to know how to do it safely and give him the absolute best chances of coming through it okay. He will probably be slight over a year by the time I am ready to breed. I don't know how old he is exactly I am guessing closer to 8 months than 6. I have only had him less than a week at this point so he is still in QT. I still need to get him used to new tank, then get the Breed/Grow out tank set up. Then Condition him and the female...when I find her @_@ So I am guess he will be over a year old or close to it. So I have a lot of concerns about breeding him incase it harms him, but I adore him and his colors and would love to have babies.
