PostSubject: Spawning tank   Thu Mar 15, 2012 2:53 am

Hey folks,

I've never spawned my bistlenose out of the main 4' tank before, but my dominant female is always ruling the breeding log, so I was thinking of pulling a pair out and putting them in my little 1' grow out tank so they can 'work' uninterupted. Is a 1' tank too small for this?

Hi,if the one foot is properly cycled and has the same perameters,what i would do is put the dominant female into it for a while with her favourite hide out.That will allow one of the others to breed with him. Would be much better than messing about moving the male and fry etc as a one foot is too small to raise fry in.

I've never had any trouble using it as a grow out tank, but it has a spounge plus a small hangon filter and I work from home so it gets small H20 changes every second day. Agree that it's too small for a full grown pair.
