Thanks Kate I just get so confused sometimes because there is so much conflicting info. on the net these dys & I get paranoid about doing the wrong thing & causing stress to my fish . I know fish acclimatise very well to various conditions but I always try to keep things as close to their natural environment as possible.
Thanks Carol it sure was, I have wanted some for a long time - I just hope they survive.
They seem quite happy at the moment & the day after I got them the female looked like she was receptive to mating with her stomach pink & her egg tube more pronounced & the male seemed to be interested, often shimmering in front of her & both were cleaning a rock, but nothing happened & I think they are still too young. I do hope they become a pair & have fry. They are in a 20 gall. with only 2 oto's.
Does the female have a breeding cycle & only a number of dys when she is more receptive?
Thanks Guys ! I think they have a better diet than I do actually I feed them the frozen bloodworms or frozen brine shrimp about every 3rd/4th dy, is that enough or should I make it every 2nd dy?
I usually do 3 smaller p.w.changes a week if I have time so tank conditions don't fluctuate too much & syphon gravel once a wk. & I have 2 filters on my tanks (maybe overkill on my part ha!ha!)
I'm not sure if the PH is ideal for ram fry though! my PH is always approx. 7.4-7.6, I don't use any PH adjusters (I used to but it caused too much stress to my fish). Do you think this PH is conducive to raising the fry if any?
