phoenixkiller As I said, I would LOVE to do this idea, just need to make sure it WORKS before I invest what little income I have into a full blown multi-species breeding operation.

Nice Blue Chocolate Neos!!! Ever planning to sell a few when their population gets up to size?

alipper Didn't even know it was you when I first posted in this thread ha. Bought some moss and shrimp from him, great guy to deal with. Will be buying more once I get a small 5 gallon up and running.

They qualify or free shipping! Buy 3 and get free shipping with an amazon account!

Btw I'm still waiting for a plant ID on the first page of the two plants I have in my tank.

D-raw Congrats dude! Your shrimp looks great

Dayumdanny The pumpkin neos came with a ton of adults and females with saddles so as soon as they settle down in there new home, I'm hoping for some berried pumpkins then ill be able to see if breeder boxes work or not.

Speaking of good news, one of my blue chocolates is berried.

Painted Blue Cherry anyone? Its kind of interesting. That specific berried chocolate looks black in my tank. The only for way for me to get its color to look like that was to shine my led flashlight at it and then take the picture. Other than that it looks like any ordinary chocolate.

phoenixkiller Man, I should try this sometime with some Neos. What a great idea.

Ooh, let us know if your idea of breeding them in the breeder boxes works out.

Great tank!!

As SoothingShrimp mentioned, they are called marina hang on the back breeder boxes. You can get them on amazon and on eBay. They come in 3 sizes and range from 7-9$ each. But BEWARE do not purchase the breeder boxes with the brand Satellite. I purchased the large one on eBay for 30$... It's the exact same box as the marina brand except marina sells them for 9$

Thanks! It's multi-purposes. I lined each breeder box with a sponge material then covered it with gravel. I just try to get some extra filtration. AND I can keep more than 1 breed of neos without them interbreeding
