PostSubject: Marble Longfins bred   Fri Mar 30, 2012 1:47 pm

I purchased 7 small marble longfins around 7 months ago. as of the past month the females have been hanging around the males cave. he only started caving not long before the girls took interest. They bred in my 3ft tank which has a a pH of 7.5. I havnt done a water change for 3 weeks as i hurt my back but before hand it was getting 15% once a week. The cave they spawned in is a drilled out piece of driftwood with a hole the diameter of 1 inch and about 4 inches deep.

Hmmmm honestly i dont think there is anything to breeding bn. All you have to do is wait for them to be ready. Feed the girls up nicely so they are gravid and ready to pop Smile

Got home from holiday with the family and first thing I did was check on the bubs. They are fully developed now and should leave the cave soon. One thing tho, they all seem albino... Or maybe they just havnt colored up yet... Can't wait to find out Smile will have pics up soon Wink

Are those cherry shrimp in the background? I also love shrimps, I have crystal red & black, fire reds, yellows, blues, etc.... Some of my shrimp keep my zebras company.

Yea the cherry shrimp in there are breeding strong. They are the only ones that survived last years scorching summer heat.
