|Subject: Halfmoon fighting fish breeding Sun May 06, 2012 5:22 am|| |
I got a pair from work to try and breed. Both halfmoon. I have them in a heated tank at about 26 degrees.
on top of my similis tank right next to my bed
now I practically can say I sleep with fish
And an albino longfin BN in with them, I plan on getting some more and breeding (there was only one left at work).
I think I did well the other day at work 2 fighting fish and 2 bristlenose (1 common male) and I only ended up $10 out of pocket
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Hi,i know very little about fighting fish so i cannot comment on those but i do know a lot about bristlenoses and i can tell you they arent going to do very well and may not even survive if you have no filter and good water movement.Also they need caves to hide in and bog wood to aid digestion (it also softens the water) Is that tub that they are in going to be their home?

Your setup is appropriate for breeding Bettas but I have to agree with bristlenoses.
Best to have snails in your breeding tank for cleanup.
You can add them after the fry have hatched so that they do not interfere with the nest
Nice looking fish btw.
