I have a royal blue CT and a blue VT/RT. Unless I get a different female by then I'll be using her. I wish i could find a good royal blue or steel blue CT or HM girl locally. ><
The tank will be my ten gallon spawning tank, filled a quarter full with fake plants and real plants if i can get some.
I'll be feeding infursoria then decap BSE then frozen baby brine shrimp. Once large enough cut up live blood worms will be added to their diet with frozen adult brine shrimp.
Generally once free swimming i add a little water each day until the tank is almost full then i switch to 25%-50% water changes every day.
I doubt the spawn will produce many fry but in the case it does I will start culling as soon as any deformities popup. A second culling will occur once colors develoup, any un-wanted colors will be adopted out but i don't expect them to exactly be sought after since they will just be blue comb-VT's with red wash most likely. I will keep the 2-4 I like best, mostly because i like to always keep a pair from my spawns for sentimental reasons xD
Umm...dunno what to say since I'm currently just conditioning the pair(frozen brine shrimp and seeing each other for a couple hours each day.
On second thought maybe I'll use a smaller spawning tank? Then move them to a grow out? If i do that i can have more then one spawn going for new years then move them all into one large grow out together...hmmm.
I'm also debating if i should but the almond leaves whole(50 for $10) or the almond leaf teabags 100 for $10?
Either way I'm going to boil up my own black water extract with a few of them(I prefer this to just floating the leaves in the water since i don't have to fish it out a week later and i can add some to all my betta tanks).
Lol anyway enough of my rambling for now. xD
