I am looking for a good male to breed. I am not concerned with minor faults because these won't be show fish (unless I get really lucky down the line) and I am looking for a good strong male to start out with. Keep in mind the form of the Halfmoon, which does actually shape a near halfmoon on the fins. You should be able to draw a 'C' completely around the bettas fins. I don't mind rays or slightly uneven caudals but in my price range these are as close to perfect as I can get (: Dumbo Butterfly: Copper: Black Copper Tiger: Salamander Butterfly: Blue Tiger Dragon: This is mostly just to gauge what people would consider a good male! I have tried my best to find a select few and I may not go with the most popular (; But do vote anyways! I want to know what people think (:
Hello! I will be setting up a 10 gallon tank for either Quarantine or a breeding tank. Maybe one first and afterwards the other. What I would like to know is a good way to get the tank cycled and going? What kind of filter would be best? My taps ammonia is at 1.0ppm and it's pH is 8.5. I don't expect to have a huge influx of new fish, so after I get them would it be ok to use it for a breeding tank? I plan on getting 1 or 2 more goldies (oranda or ranchu) and about 6 mollies a couple of cherry barbs, and cory cats, in a 20 gallon (Not a definite lineup, I have more research to do). But I do hope to breed if things work out. Would it be better to use the 10 for the mollies and the 20 for the quarantine/breeding? Thank you!
Hello there! I am chomping at the bit to breed my goldies... I started out content with just keeping them, but raising my own little dudes from teeny eggs sounds irresistibly fun. I've read and read and I am confident that I can do this. Only one problem. So to simulate seasons, you are supposed to lower the tank temperature to 64-68 degrees. Problem! I live in Arizona and my tank temperature right now (in the dead of winter) is permanently stuck at 74. I'm desperately trying to decide the right way to go about this. If I am reading correctly, it needs to be lowered for 1-2 weeks and then gradually increased. I thought about slowly adding cold water and taking out the warm, but holy geez would that be a loooong process as to not shock the fish via temperature change. And even then it would come back up to room temp by at least that night. Frozen bottles of water submerged? Still wouldn't last too long and may make the water TOO cold. I work 8:30-5, M-F so monitering the temperature throughout the day would be difficult (although I can and do go home on my lunch breaks). Thoughts?
