Hi all,

After seeing these beautiful fish, I have decided to try to breed them. I picked up 3m + 2f as per the rainbowfish book and have them in quaranteen in a tank with guppies at the moment. I was wondering if anyone had bred them before and had some tips/tricks to share?

Thanks in advance,

Aaron

p.s. these fish look awesome when flaring! :D

The hardest part is getting the fry past the critical couple of weeks after free swimming. They are one of the hardest rainbows to grow on. Even the orher ones like Boesmani is hard, but if you have enough time and heaps of greenwater you should be good.

Remove the eggs daily and transfer to hatching tank with same water parameters.

Good luck and keep us posted. :wink:

Can you give me some tips on getting your water that green?

I have some blackwater spieces that I would like to breed in the new year and would like to get tanks sorted first for fry, which are also very small and hard to feed/ slow growing. I am thinking would need to be around 6 mths before bbs is appropriate

Any hints tips would be appreachiated.
