    Do you have a quarantine tank I was thinking if you put your female and a male in there alone letting nature take its course
     
  11. billmarshall94 Member Member

    why the male, won't he eat the eggs?
     
  12. billmarshall94 Member Member

    no at tank...
     
  13. Dave125g Fishlore VIP Member

    You need a male to fertilize the eggs
     
  14. billmarshall94 Member Member

    stupid me, of course...
     
  15. billmarshall94 Member Member

    I will set one up, maybe a 10 gal.
     
  16. Dave125g Fishlore VIP Member

    That should do. You may want to check out you tube about breeding them also
     
  17. billmarshall94 Member Member

    I will and thanks for the help, just started using live plants in the tank. I think it makes it look more natural.

    Yes and it helps with the bio load too
