Ok thought I'd better put something in here on the conditions that my Bns have spawned.
Tank Size - 24"x12"x15" (This is normally used as my grow out tank)
PH - 6.8
KH - 3
Gh - 13
No3 - 0
No2 - 0
Amonia - 0
water temp - 74F or 22C
Filtration is just a small internal filter (200 litre an hour) that really needs replacing for something bigger. The outlet of which is directed at an angle across the mouth of the cave.
1st spawn Trigger - Nothing special, normal 15% waterchange once a week with water the same temp or within +/- 2F
2nd spawn trigger - Again nothing special water changes the sames with regards to temp and percentages, but they are being done every two days now due to the first spawn fry.
Other tank mates:
1 x black molly
4 x platies
1 x female guppy.
2 x cherry shrimps
50+ fry for the second spawn.
First picture is of the first spawn fry, second picture is of male in the cave on the second batch of eggs (sorry itsd not very clear). You can see one of the first spawn fry on the edge of the cave bottom left in the scond picture.
The long fin Albino in the first picture is the mum of the second batch but she wasn't the mum for the first. First batch was the result of the trapping of a common brown female inmy main tank, who's head can be seen in my picture for the POTM comp for Jan/Feb.
