Oryzias Kendari fry


My latest project


I know its hard to see the eggs. They are fresh and clear so your gonna have to look hard.


But this won't be so hard to see


I finally got lucky at egg laying fish. Going to be feeding them so food I developed lately in the hopes of replacing BBS. But in either case, holy hell! This is awesome. No wonder some people only breed fish and never do plants.

Thanks! Its crazy exciting right now. I've been in this hobby for about 15 years and this is only the second time I breed egg laying fish. I finally been learning for the last year.

Hopefully they grow good.

That's cool! how difficult was it to get them to even breed?

I've been really lucky and breed the 3rd day after I got them I get at least 17 eggs a day. It was really easy for me. But I think its because of who I got it from. A friend of mines who's an amazing local fish breeder gave me 5 of them because they were getting old and he needed some tanks space. Since he kept them so well, they were very healthy and already conditioned to breed. So its extremely easy for me thanks to the previous owner's care
