Yep, that's my main concern, but I have an idea for mass heating of jars. Placing the jars in a larger tub with a heater and something to circulate the water may work out. I do plan to cull fry though to reduce the numbers. I already have a few with swimming issues I'll need to take care of, but I'm waiting longer to see if they sort themselves out and so I can get a bottle of clove oil for sedation first.

As much I hate listening and reading about culling, it is something that MUST be done and is in the responsibility of the breeder.

It does take a bit if someone does it for the first time. I dont know from experience as I really have never had to cull before. I'm sure in future spawns I will. Still trying to stay away from the day I do. This is another reason I'd like to have a big fish such as an Oscar.

@MrVampire: Anyway...I think the drip system is a really good idea and will help a lot when its up and running. Very beneficial and a smart way to go.

I understand. I don't WANT to do it, but I know there will be fry that will need it, and it is much more humane than other options. Hopefully, I won't need to, but it's something I had to resolve myself to before deciding I wanted to do this.

Everyone is in! Blue plakats and HMs. I added my green PK female and my "imbellis" male to a Thai breeding set up just to try it out (a first for me!). Let the game begin.

I'm following this thread closely. Even though I'm not a breeder I've learned a lot! Plus, I may just have to get one a fry from one of these pairs.

That's how I learned! I used to stalk every spawn log I could to figure out how to best raise and spawn my fish.
