Hi all
Just started breeding albinos - problem is my danios tend to get into the logs before the eggs can hatch so my success rate is low at the moment. Good news for the BN'ss is the danios go tomorrow!
Also picked up a longfin albino pair today so hopes are high Smile

Cheers
Mic

Looks like i might have to get rid of the tetras too - seems like the danios have taught them some bad habbits.... Evil or Very Mad

High MIX02U and welcome to the forum cheers
Seems weird that your tetra's are causing drama's with the eggs - what sort are they, are they just neon sized or something bigger like a congo tetra?
Any hoo happy browsing and posting.

Tetras are glowlights and black neons. Watched one of the glowlights spitting an egg out and sucking it back in this morning. I couldnt believe it fit in its mouth! Shocked
Anyway, they are all going to be relocated today so goodbye problems, hello wrigglers!

scratch Weird , my Glo-lights are dumb as a box of nails, never ever even seen them to be interested in the fry let alone going in the caves to smuggle eggs.
Oh well getting rid of them to another tank or friend will fix the issue- maybe get some different ones that haven't had the bad schooling Laughing .

OK, most of the problem children have been removed - they are particularly hard to catch around all the driftwood while also trying not to disturb the albino's! I still have two very fat black neons and one zebra danio that i couldnt catch but the main offenders (in particular, the longfin leopard that started this whole saga) have been relocated to my neighbours house.
The next big hurdle will be my two week holiday starting on Thursday and leaving the feeding to an inexperienced neighbour. Any tips on the best way to navigate this hurdle?

I'd recomend that the neighbour pays attention to how much you feed your fish , if not not suggest a little less food / not enough food = they will last till next time you see them , to much food - well I really don't to suggest what could happen next.
cheers J

As for the problem children - have you ever tried just putting the net in the water and waiting for the riff raff to swim in?
it works great for my female swordtail when she's ready to drop babies

Yeah, thats what I was thinking. Probably just get them fed 3 times in the ten days I'll be away - algae wafers only so they don't have to remove vegie left overs

Feed twice a day MIXO2U, breakfast and dinner - that's all I do - especially for the neighbour , it will save them stressing about feeding your fish and give them time not to worry about your fish.
2 feeds a day is fine and you'll end up with less wasted food ( I just had to fix this problem in my 4 ft grow out tank cheers )
As for the problem kids -- serious just hang the net in your tank and see what swims in , my female sword tail is probably to inquisitive for her own good , when ever she's dropping babies I just add food and she swims straight in the net.
cheers J

I was actually thinking one feed each three days - theres 7 bn's in a 4ft tank with HEAPS of driftwood, plants, moss so although I dont expect any spawns, I wouldn't have to worry about excess waste

PostSubject: They made it   Sun Feb 07, 2010 8:56 pm

Well I'm back from holidays and all my fish have survived. My neighbour did an exceptional job and they look a little fatter too.
After all the eggs from the first spawn were eaten by my danios and tetras I have set up a small breeding tank and am waiting impatiently for the next signs of spawning. My two other females are getting plump so hopefully they wont keep me waiting too long
