A divided long tank as spawning tank
This idea is meant for those egg scattering breeds whose eggs are not sticky and fall to the floor.
The adult’s tank:-
Take a bare bottom tank and divide the tank with an acrylic sheet into two parts. The divider should be tight and ˝” above the floor. Put ˝” strips running from just under the divider along the length of one side of the divided tank. Fix UG plates (or some other stiff mesh) over these ˝” strips so that none of the adults can get under the UG plate.
The egg/fry tank:-
In the other half just put a sponge filter with a power-head. Add a pipe to the output of the power-head and pass it into the adult tank through a hole drilled in the partition.
Do I have to say how it works? Is it not obvious??
If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.
