fishboy199413 I think I will either be using a 7.4 gallon or a 10 gallon.

AwkwardShrimp thanks everyone! Ive isolated the parents in a breeder box inside the same tank.

Good luck fishboy199413! What size tank will you be trying ?

AVN Isolate fry and parents, no matter how big they are, if you want the highest rate of survival.

AwkwardShrimp i see 4 fry in the tank!,

I havent really done anyhting special or new. the fry have been in there with the parents. i have never seperated the parents or moss from the tank since the beginning of this thread.

Should i seperate the adults from the tank or no? i assume the fry are too big to fit in their mouths by now but this is only an assumption, i could stick the parents in the mesh breeder box inside the tank?

Im very excited. I've heard however keeping the fry alive is harder than getting fish to spawn so i hope they make it

Hey at least now i now i've got a breeding group!

AwkwardShrimp SUCCESSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i see two baby fry fish swimming!

AVN Breeder nets, breeder boxes.

CPD won't spawn if you keep moving them tank to tank, they need to acclimate to the water.

In my experience (although most of what you need to know has already been pointed out) I've done well breeding CPD in a 20g with a net that allows eggs to fall through. After they spawn, I just toss them back into their community tank and remove the net. Don't need any mosses or anything, the tank is bare bottom and runs a sponge filter connected to an air pump.

If I'm not mistaken CPD are originally from black/soft water biotopes. I use IAL or driftwood to condition the water and make it tannin rich.

Water parameters:
Temp - 75F
pH - 6.5

The rest doesn't really matter. Ammonia and others should remain as close to 0 as possible.

A side note, live foods condition them to breed better than frozen. I recommend grindal worms, microworms, or dahpnia monia. Although golden pearls will accomplish everything and be less of a hassle, if you want to pay the monies for it.

Another side note, my CPD seemingly always spawn in the morning, when the lights first come on. I also noticed they tend to spawn the day after I do a large water change. Perhaps fresh, cooler water stimulates them?

Try it out.

Anyone try anything like this or think it will work?
Sounds good. I'm thinking of putting a mesh breeding box in the tank , after tthe week I will put the parents in there and leave the moss in the tank. Anyone think this will work ?
