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.

..... I would totally pamper them after breeding. (not that I don't already... but more so works ^^) :p

I got two more males too!!! Pretty things :) both crowntail crosses.. probably 8 months or a lil' older lol. The ones here I assume are about 8 months... smaller ones are 5 months.

-sighs- sadly, it did not work out for this spawn!! There were no eggs left (betting he ate them) and he lost interest in the nest. But no worries I am not giving up :) I'll try again eventually!! I even have two new females, hopefully healthy.... just a bit small and young.

So do I. Still have hope :) but oh my gosh he survived ANOTHER poisoning today.... What is it with plastic fish tanks? This time I caught it quickly, and noticed his distress (delirious swimming, unreactive to me, didn't act normal and swam kind of haphazardly.)
So now he is in a breeders net in the twenty gallon... My new females are with Madame in the other and Dusk has the other tank :) but it's all good!!

Im sorry to hear about his tumor, but hes lived such a nice long life, and its still small, so although you wont be breeding him, i think hes got some time left to enjoy. Great job keeping him healthy and alive for so long and GL with any future spawns :)

Sena- Just FYI, there's no such thing as "plastic poisoning"...unless your tank has spontaneously combust, which I doubt happened....

Your fish is stressed probably from other factors. It's not the tank.
