5 gallon tank (breeding) x 20 gallon growout
Hikari First Bites x Infusoria x Mosquito larvae
Anacharis/silk plants x Fry containers (for jarring)
Jar heating tub
2 extra heaters
Frozen Bloodworms (conditioning & later fry food) Golden Pearls
Do you think I'm prepared? P.S. I was going to have the breeding process as a science project. What do you think? What type of snail should I use in the breeding & growout tanks?
Breeding in 5 gallon, Growout in 20 gallon. Feeding: yolk sac,1-2 days, Infusoria, Egg yolk & First Bites For first 1-2 weeks. ML & Golden Pearls For the next few weeks. Then GP, Frozen Bloodworms, & Crushed pellets & Flakes.
Probably what they already have... it's a checklist
I would eliminate the egg yolk, the first bites, and the flakes. Stay with bbs, infusoria, microworms, (other worms), and decaps
That would definitely make sense. I guess it is too late for me to think at the moment. Thanks VM.
@OP: I agree. Take away the dry foods until they are 2-3 months depending on size. Though a more accurate way would be waiting until they're .85 inches to 1 inch in size. This is what I usually feed them (well try to feed them anyway) at this size.
If this is your first spawn I do recommend a larger tank (10 gallons). You will need live food like BBS. Those foods listed are not good for growing fry. And some Atison Betta Pro when get to be the size of eating pellets (trust me it's like steroids for fry).
Thank you all! I hope to get some BBS, VE or MW. Does anyone have a sample culture for a cheap price? I was going to use a 5 gallon because I want to use a smaller tank. Yes Curly, I forgot about buckets. I said Anacharis, and sorry, I will use pellets for later on thx. MRV, I'll get my hands on some Attisons. I've heard of people using egg yolk and First Bites with spawns, I thought it worked.... huh. Thank You all so much!!!
Again I recommend a larger tank due to your lack of experience in spawning. A lot can go wrong in a smaller tank that a new breeder would be completely unaware of. It most likely will be fine but I stand by my recommendation.
