PostSubject: all my bn have grown..now time to breed them.   Wed Nov 11, 2009 1:54 pm

i have 10 bn about 3-4 inches in length and was wondering how to induce breeding. i have a few tanks open, i have some good looking males and females.
i started out trying to breed bn...but ended up with my discus pairing up and well...kind of put them to the side..
i have a few flower pots that i cut in half i can put in the tank. i have a 20g tank i was thinking about putting a pair in.
someone give me a few pointers on water quality, temp...lights and maybe what to feed them...as of now they eat green beans, cucumber and wafers.

so a 20g tank would be ok to breed them in? i have a 29g also-but i like to keep it for some discus fry...and if things go good-bn fry.

make sure your female's are very plump in other words make sure they are nice and fat...because the female's choose when its time so its vital you condition them just right...plenty of courgette and wafers should do the trick.. Smile

well...nothing as of yet-but did notice the female took over the cave, and the male sitting on the cave.
cave= 1/2 clay flower pot.
