Breeding Neon Tetra's
First of all I'd like to say that I have not posted in a while and I love the similar threads finder, what a great idea!
Anyway, I have 5 neon tetra's alone in a 29g that I purchased together when they were very small and now, about 10 months later, they are full grown. First, I would like to ask if anybody here has any personal experience breeding the neon tetra and also if you could give me advice on my plan.
I have set up a 10 gallon breeding tank next to the main one with a dark bottom covered in marbles a heater, a small filter, and a clump of java moss. Out of my 5 fish I believe their is only 1 female (or at least only one noticably rounder fish). I put the female into the breeding tank and have been feeding all of the fish live baby brine shrimp and a little of their usual flake food. In a few days I plan to combine the neons and see if anything happens and if not I will keep them together for a few days and then do a 50% water change using RO water.
What do you guys think about my idea and is it O.K. to just put in RO water without any additives?
Thank you so much!
