Idea for new sub-forum: Breeding

I had this idea last night while I was watching some youtube videos on breeding different types of fish. Why don't we have a sub-forum on breeding fish and other critters? I think a lot of people would be interested. It is certainly something I would like to try one day.

I like it! Of couse, most livebearers would simply be: get a male and female, add water and wait for the inevitable! It could be helpful for hobbyists at all experience levels.

+1 on a sub for breeding. Also, killifish!

Ambitious, aren't you? Some of us are still at the "how do I keep them alive" stage.

I would actually love trying to breed my favorite species; there's nice post on already, of course, but it's just one perspective.

Yea but I wonder whether the dearth of killifish interest is a cart-horse thing. I see eggs and fish on aquabid and there are killifish clubs all over the world where you can usually hook up with locals for animals/eggs, but you rarely see them mentioned on the "normal" fresh water forums like this one. Maybe as an aside. It seems as though they're more popular in Europe than the USA? As beautiful as these fish are, it's a shame that they aren't more popular. I guess the life expectancy of some and the cooler water requirements make them more of a novelty. It's too bad really (IMO).

Well, we have a forum called Fish and another for Inverts. Can't you just post about breeding danios in the Fish forum? It certainly could use the traffic and I personally do not think another very slow forum offers much. Just my opinion.

After all, providing proper care and inducing spawning are often not too different from each other.
