msjinkzd - I was wondering (and searching!) where you got your latch hook stuff? Would needlepoint canvas work too? I'm about to set up a maternity tank, and I also need some stiffer, plastic-y grid material to lay over the tops of my new white worm cultures.

Thanks!

yea, absolutely. I think i bought it at walmart, of all places but it could have been AC Moore (craft store). They just need to cover the bottom of the tank and form a bow shape, to allow for the eggs to drop through.

Cherry barb update...

I plan on getting the tank for breeding set up ASAP, i've been extremely busy and haven't had a lick of time, or space, to do so. All the fish are well, i'm nearly sure they have bred in my main tank 2 times, mabey more, i don't know how often they breed.

Update! I decided to start a video series of this and upload a video every week or so giving an update on the Cherry barbs, heres a link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhkC7cg8cKo, they're doing great 2 Gravid and about ready to go anyday now, feeding a lot and with frozen blood worms, seems to do the trick. I hope i can eventually get one to survive in the main tank but until i get my breeding tank setup this will be the way it will be.
