Right now I have only one male and one adult female both, my idea is to have a male and several females, they have almost 1 year together and have never made a nest, I think it is because the temperature is very low currently they are at 74 degrees, Do you think I can put more females?I believe females are fine with more than one, but males can be particularly aggressive, especially after there are eggs he will defend nest from even the mother.
ok look what i will do! I'm going to try the 40 gallon fish tank, with one male and how many females do you recommend? and if something goes wrong I take the male out and put it in a fish tank alone, how many gallons is the minimum for the male alone? many thanksI would think you possibly can, but it may also be a good idea to have another tank set up just in case it doesn't work out for whatever reason.
yes, it currently has a sponge filter that moves the surface a lot, that's why they don't reproduce! but do you think it's a good idea to have several females and one male together?Male alone I’d say 10 gallons realistically. As for breeding them, the surface needs to be very still and that’s where the bubble nest will be made and if the water has a strong ripple he won’t even bother.
Right now the tank only has the gouramis couple, so then I will try to find 3 females to have 4 females and one male! would it be ok like that? I make 2 changes of 50% weeklyDepends on the stock of your tank currently, what else is in there? Given that they still could be territorial, id go around 3 or 4 females i think, no less than 3.
