PostSubject: Longfins Spawning   Thu Feb 19, 2009 3:19 pm

Well, some of the long awaited longfins arrived and I put the females in with the pair we already had, but hadn't spawned for a few months. Well we got up this morning and there were eggs in the cave cheers Unfortunately this male has a habit of kicking out the eggs, and so far has only kicked out half of them which are now in a fry net with meth blue and an airstone in an emergency tank. However, the others seem to be very well adhered to the cave and fingers crossed they stay in place Very Happy

High Angi-N-Wayne , this may sound like a stupid question but have u tried tilting the back of the
cave into the substrate at about 35 degrees. I find this help over zeless male from fanning to hard
and booting eggs . Good to hear about the spawn though and especially long fins , u don't see many
of them in S.A and r pretty pricey when they do come up.
Cheers J

Good on you Angi-N-Wayne , Congratulations. Are you going to let them grow out in the tank that
they are in or are you going to move them to their own grow out tank , if you are moving them ,a neat
trick I use is to load a biggish fish net with zuccini and just let them swim right in -no damage and no stress
Cheers J

We take the cave with the eggs and daddy in to a grown on tank before they hatch. When we want to move fish around or catch for selling, we use a similar method to you. Empty glass jars, a couple of spirulina wafers in the bottom and wait Smile I try and feed them with wafers like this all the time so they see it as pretty normal behaviour. Then it's just reach in, grab the jar, and as they say, Bobs ya auntie lol! lol! lol!

How did you know my auntie bob? lol!
How big is your grow out tank? must be reasonablly big if you are getting a few spawns, a hell of a lot of my
fish go out to a friend of mines house ,he has no tanks under 4ft so they really dig growing out in these.

The initial grow tank is an 18x12x12 After a coupla weeks they get spread around other tanks ranging from 2 footers to 4 footers. I like to mix them up so that if there's a problem with a particular tank we don't loose all of the same type, and after having that happen last year <sniffle> it was a hard lesson learnt Smile
