Quite a different set up than 29 gal tank with bare bottom sans aquaponiclol xD I have 3 males and 6 females(and about 300 babies atm) in a 15 gallon aquarium, hooked up to my aquaponics where i breed my moss and some other emersed aquarium plants, the water quality is perfect, and they breed so fast, i've got 2 batches of eggs per male bristlenose/month
the only adjustment i had to make was put in high water circulation so the poop couldn't settle, but besides that I can maintain the tank with one water change every 2 weeks.
Ofcourse if you look at the aquaponic beds as filter, they are 4x the size of the tank lol xD

capabilities and increased volume of water NO?
Can only respond to what has been written/posted, rather than what could be.
Whether what is posted is true or not.
I got an eagle in a bird cage at home, and am raising my child in a closet.
Black is white,tall is short,etc.
And so it goes with forum's.
Do post up some photo's of your system so that we may all get an idea as to how it all work's for you.
I redid that topic, timeframe would be more over 2 months. The first 2 batches of eggs got kicked out by the male because he had another female spawning, i took the eggs and put them in a shrimp tank(they all hatched). Each female lays around 50 eggs each time, as far as i can tell(and its hard to tell since i only do maintenance once/week on the tank). They lay eggs once every 15 days, but the males seem to be sending the signal when they are ready for another batch of eggs.Is too bad ,that we have no recent photo's, for I was/am keenly interested in the idea. Though not so keenly interested in the care I might need to provide for a method that could produce 300 babies in time frame you have reported according to the thread you linked to and today's post.
2 batches of egg's per month as you report, would mean all 4 females? churning out 50 + babies at a time or thereabout's
Waste from these babies, and food's offered to keep em healthy in 15 gal tank along with the Adult's,, must produce some kinda growth in the plant tray's.?(what type of plant's?)
Or do you have several of these fifteen gal tanks going with the aquaponic benefit's for using the waste?
Why choose such a small 15 gal tank for the 6 Adult's and 300 babies?
I will eagerly await most recent photo of your success with this system and am thinking of housing a few plant's in spare tank's I have ,and using the waste water from my 55 gal breeding tank in similar fashion.
I like the idea, but have no outlet for the number's of fry you report.
