The Galaxy Strikes Back
I bought 10 Microrasbora Galaxy and 10 Cherry shrimps and put them in my quarantine tank 2 months back. The fish and shrimps were barely visible but 9 of each have survived, thanks to my green water tub. My quarantine is a 24” bare bottom, potted plants, sponge filter.
The Galaxies have grown and are in full colour and I wish to shift them to a dedicated 36” aquarium, so that they may breed. I know very little about them, their breeding habits, their preferred water quality, their fry protection.
1) What sort of layout do I prepare for their breeding tank?
2) If planted, what plants?
3) Soft/hard water?
4) What ph?
5) Is it one female several males, or pairs, or groups?
6) Do I house the cherries with them?
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.
