Before I begin breeding, I have a few more questions to clear up.
I have the food down, a 10 gallon tank bare bottomed with a moss ball, one fake rubber plant, heater, two 1/2 plastic cup pieces in there, lid with light adding humidity, and a GORGEOUS dragon scale boy and a very pretty, VERY eggy little girl.
My girl has been spending the past few months being conditioned with mosquito larvae during the summer, food multiple times daily (my girls ask to be fed a lot, but I usually do 2-3 pellets per fish 2-3x daily, as some end up eating more than their share so I try to make sure all my girls get enough)
Now here's one question..
Is it alright if my girl is a bit bigger? She's been spoiled rotten for months and the boy is fairly new. She's probably the smallest conditioned female.. I have one that is MASSIVE. She's also docile from what I've seen.
The boy is doing his little wiggles and dancing, and she isn't flaring in her cup :D She watches him, but doesn't threaten him :) Her stress bars also went away immediately upon seeing the male, which was neat. She's easily freaked out..
Would the fry be healthy enough that they won't all die on me in 3-4 weeks when I (hopefully) move? It'd be a quick move and I can transfer them to a 2.5 gallon with some heat packs in a box, but how fragile would they be at that age?
I think that's the only questions I have.. thought there were more, so if I remember them I will put them here too.
Thanks in advance :)
