Been doing some research on breeding these guys, My question is would something like this hang on breeder box be good for breeding? My plan is to get some mischlings and then get a couple males of BKK, BB, WR and breed them in. This seems like it would be good to place the male taiwan and the female mishling to make sure that they breed without having to have a large tank. I have two tanks set up one for TB, and one for Mishlings. Just wondering if this would make it easier and I would be able to be sure that they bred with the right ones.

Any input on this would be appreciated!

Is this some form of pre-arranged marriages?

Should they have a choice who they wanna date? :) J/K

I put a few males TB and a bunch of females CRS in a 10 gallon tank and let them pick their own dates ...

But I don't see why not with your arrangement.

If you guys go back and check my thread on the Marina HOB breeder box I talk about using it in the very same manner. It works incredibly well for selective breeding. I, myself, do not leave the berried females in the box to hatch. Personally I find that the babies rear much better in the large tank with all its available biofilm for food.

Sounds good. Figured it,would. Wanted to use something with the exact same water parameters. I like to select the best ones in them. I'll have to try it out
