Re:Breeding Question


Pete, thanks for the response 🙂

Yes sir, I remember the advise you gave me very well on the factors that influence gestation. I took the advice to heart and made them the best habitat possible.
I have the chiller, so it is a perfect 74 degrees constantly. I increased my water turnover to approx 6- 6 1/2 times per hour by upgrading to a larger skimmer and raising the height of my canister filter to reduce the head pressure. I also now have a power compact lighting system that has a dusk to dawn feature with moonlights all hooked to separate timers and it is working perfectly. The male shows no sign of having buoyancy problem’s, and in fact is quite playful.
Their tank is right next to my desk- where I spend most of my time (gotta pay for them somehow:) and they spend all day dancing back and forth changing colors trying to get me to feed them. I check my water parameters daily and hopefully all will be well in the future.

Thanks for all the advice,
