what happens next?

Post by michaelyzf »

Hello everyone.

Have has 2 health looking fish for a year now.

1 is about 3.5 inches & fat, other is about 2.5 inches & not as fat.

Bare bottom tank, Hma water, ph 7, 28deg. 2 sponge filters with fast air movement. Feed bloodworm.

Larger fish occupied a cave permanently since day one. Other lived behind a heater & moved occupied cave for 48 hours, nothing happened & came back out. Never been near since.

I dont really know what to expect.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks Michael

Firstly, they should be given a more diversified diet which includes some veggies. they are not carnivores but rather omnivores who like meat.

The behavioral clues would suggest you have a male and a female. But encouraging them to spawn may or may not work. If you want to take a proactive approach then you will need to do a dry season and then a rainy season to try and prod them along.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
