Size of breeding group

Post by bikerman6660 »

Hi all I am in the fortunate position of having 22 adult zebs which I have grown on from fry. They are now ready to be split into breeding groups the only problem is I can,t decide on the size of the groups? Any idea,s opinions would be welcome. Tank space is not an issue.

Hi all depends size of tanks you haave that you can put them in ,ive 6 groups of 5 in each tank 2m/3f size 24x18x18, 130 liter-ish but only 4 groups have bred in them so far.
For me personnally ive got plenty of ways out incase of a disease and bad luck hits me, and lose some .
Water changes every 2nd day and keeping on top of them is also easy for me to do,as mine all have taps siliconed in to tank fronts .

Decision would be based on : how many males and females do you have?
