Re: can anyone see any problems with the set up of the tank?

In my large tank nearly a yr & half on I have had a few trappings b...

Re: Anyone successful bred from a pair or f/m/m or m/f/f tri

Thanks for your reply Stevie k They've bred before. They were from an existing breeding colony. The male was the alpha male. I'm told he is not a regular breeder like years ago as he is getting older, my guess is he is 7-8 years olds. Im thinking of adding another mature male to add competition to ...

Re: Anyone successful bred from a pair or f/m/m or m/f/f tri

I have had success with 2 groups of m/f/f, I wouldn't put f/m/m groups buts thats just my opinion I would try a bigger group that is more female heavy with 2 or 3 males. Good luck with breeding them I would say everything looks good with your tank, patience is the biggest thing you may be lucky with...

Re: Whoop whoop! zebs spawn at last!

Hi Jo,
Congrats on your zebs, how many fry did you get?
I have had spawns in the past where i had had fry & new spawns in the same cave with zebs with no problems, they find their way out in the end! :)

Re: Mixing Adults and Juveniles/ Babies

Any tanks I have with fry & adults I feed what they can eat 2 or 3 times daily if I am around to give them more chance to grow quicker.

Congrats if they are new fry/juvis, you will need to do more regular water changes if you do more feeding. :)

Re: Big tank

My Zebs range in tanks from 2-3 ft & 4 ft which I have bred in them all. I have a large group that are in a 6 1/2 ft tank & I make sure I feed in different areas, I have had trappings but never a spwan that I have seen anyway. They have been in here for a year & some males tend to move from cave to ...
