Maechael Separate the males and the females as soon as you can, no more guppy Fry haha.

I'm looking to get some RCS/CRS at some point soon, wish I had more money for the endeavor. Would love a dual tank setup for a start in a breeding program.

The 1'st time...I grew out' a dozen in my overflows before I even knew they were in there

That's always nice to be surprise to new fish in the tank.

GMYukonon24s I've never cichlids, but if I did I think I would probably try GBRs.

"Got light?" WOOP's.... I forgot all about my African Cichlid days back in the late 80's
(back when nearly all African Cichlids sold in stores were wild-caught)
I forget which ones did end up breeding , but I remember I could never get my Frontosas to breed

(mouth-brooders are so easy to breed.... they do most of the work themselfs )

GMYukonon24s Maechael good luck on the berried ghost shrimp. I like my guppies but eventually the ones I have in my 10g I won't because they'll be to many.

Got light nice to see you have alittle of both worlds fresh and SW breeding.

Assorted Guppies
Albino Cory Cats
Assorted Platies (Wiki spells the plural form with: ies)
Yellow-Tail Damsels
Bangi Cardinals
Percula clownfish

Hey all breeders

Any of you folks running breeding operations?

Or just breeding for fun?


As for the OP's OT, I have had my Guppies breed well, numerous times now.
Have a few berried ghost shrimps here and there, but no drops yet, fingers crossed on that happening sometime soon though.

Just picked up some new tanks, hoping to get a nice little breeding setup going for smaller schooling fish.

mattschaefer92 I've seen some that were born in captivity on another forum. I'll try to find the link and post it for you.

GMYukonon24s That is true otos are cheap. I remember the first time I kept otos. For some reason I had no luck with keeping them alive. Then awhile back when one of the big name stores had them for a dollar I bought 10 of them and now I've kept them pretty good.

I like my shrimp because they breed easily and would be nice if my BN plecos breed again. Also I hope when my long fin BNs get bigger I can get them to bred.

Why? They are so cheap. Rasbora tetra are very cheap too. Sometime $1 at pet smart.

danakin My ultimate goal is to get Otos to breed, but those suckers are a flippin mystery to me still. So right now I have just a high stock tetra/rasbora tank with no goal of breeding right now.
