Hello!

Just wanted to share! I have a trio of black Ranchus that I've been conditioning to spawn with the coming full moon. We are 4 days out ot from it and there is a LOT of pre-spawning behavior going on. Following, bumping, etc. I'm VERY excited!! I'm gonna drop the water level on Saturday if they don't spawn on their mops before then. WOOHOO!!!!

I was given info at the goldfish breeders group at Yahoo that said 50% protein food for 3 weeks before the full moon would get them into spawning condition. I've been feeding tubifex, earthworms, and my special blend of gel food. I used salmon, peas, rabbit pellets and oranges for it. It seemed to really make them fill out nicely. The next step is two days before the moon, doing a water change, then feeding them white rice in addition to the food already served. I'm having a lotta hope for this. I've wanted to do it for so long.

it's what I was told tended to trigger the spawn. As they get closer to the day, I have seen more following behavior, although I've been conditioning during that time too, so who knows? I'm still hopeful. I'll hopefully have good news Saturday morning. Or maybe Sunday Morning. We'll see.
