PostSubject: Breeding Tips for L182 Starlight's   Sun Feb 08, 2009 10:41 am

i have spawned these a few times

i have a group of 5 in a 2.5ft Tank but will soon be moving a few i hope to eventually have 1 male and 2 females in the tank at the moment there is 1 defenate male and 1 defenate Female and these are my breeders im unsure of the others....

the only tank mates in there is a group of young black Corys and some Cherry Shrimp

i have 1 piece of bogwood in the tank and 3 caves, the caves are the ones interpidmax makes not sure on the size i will get one out and measure it

there is an Air stone in there as there is in all my tanks

and filteration is a Ehiem aquaball, temp is 26

i feed them Cucumer, Courgette (Zucchi), algea wafers and once a week i give them frozen bloodworm

i do water changes everyday until i can see the female is gravid then leave them for a week and just feed after a week i do a 30% water change with cold treated tap water

i have 2-3 Almond leaves in the tank also

the parameters

PH 6.8-7
nitrate 0
nitrite0

The almond leaves help lower/neutralize PH & also add Tannins to the water. Personally i love the look of the tannin stained water as it reminds me of the rivers they come from Wink

Indian almond leaves are cheep & can be bought from ebay for around $20 for 50 leaves. You only need 1-2 depending on size of your tank & replace every 4-6 weeks (or when they start to breakdown. So a bag of 50 leaves will last you well over a year for a 2.5fter Wink

Hope this helps Chad.C Smile
