  1. Hi all! A couple of fellow Nerms have been asking ' Since you keep on talking about your fish breeding why not do a journal?'. I have and this is it! I've called my journal @TheSwissAquarist Journal 2.0 because I'm super bad at doing journals, but this time I might as well give it a shot, but don't be surprised if journal number 3 turns up! The fish: I've bred a decent amount of fish (not for me to say!) and in the last year it has been my main fixation: keep 'em, breed 'em, and have fun! I've spawned angels, BN plecos, bettas, and currently working on some other stuff (I'm writing this off the top of my head 😜). For starters I'll just post a nice pic and update it 'à fur et à mesure' (French for as it goes on!). Need to find a good one... This is a pic of my Pseudomugil Luminatus. Fun fish to keep, and I'm very pleased with catching them like this! I fed them with some BBS, small water change and a day later they spawned! Pic from ≈ 4 months ago. I understand that some of my claims of breeding fish have been met with (understandable!) scepticism, and I shall try my best to find any pics of fry I have taken and keep this journal up dated with my current projects. Have a nice day!
  2. At the end of January I received 2 male and 2 female German blue rams, they arrived on the coldest day of the year. Due to an excellent job of packing and insulating by the breeder they all were healthy and seemingly not too stressed out. you can see both males are showing decent color. After a few days they easily settled into the QT. after a couple weeks I moved them to a 20G high. the 4 GBR are the only fish in here so really they are still in quarantine. They became real comfy real quick, after 4 days there was FRY! I am not ready for them to breed yet but if they make it great but I was not ready to pull adults/ fry and nurture them. Unfortunately none made it. Positive take, one of the females has some experience now. I am not sure which female it was but the female that will be in group 2 was guarding them and being aggressive so I’m fairly confident she is the mother. Pic is with the father also group 2. And because of this aggression I had to separate them before I wanted too but only by 5-ish days. They have been quarantined for a lil over 3 weeks now. So, the competition begins! I have separated the two pairs into mostly different environments. Group 1 will be in a 125G community tank. Rummynose/ cardinal/ glowlight tetras, salt and pepper corys, peppered corys, bristlenose plecos, otocinlus, and a large colony of cherry shrimp. They will be fed as the tank gets fed, a variety of krill flakes, pellets, crushed algae wafers, and what I call “dank” (a good version of stank) it’s a mixture of the list above and a few other dry foods (very guarded recipe) I also feed this tank live blackworms and frozen bloodworms, shrimp, and daphnia. I do target feed the GBR when feeding these. There are no “caves” in this tank but a few cave like spots and it has a lot of medium sized flat rocks. The PH in this tank runs about 7.6-7.8. Group 2 will be in a species only tank. Will probably add some snails for a clean up crew when needed. This tank on initial set up (for these rams this tank has been running for over a year with other inhabitants) was seeded with a large portion of black worms. They were in the tank alone for 2-ish weeks before rams introduced.The feeding schedule will be exact same but these two won’t have any competition for food. This tank has a few caves and guarded areas, only a couple medium sized flat rocks will be added. The rocks will be placed in what I think to be good for them and still be visible and easily accessible. I cut the water in this tank with about 1/3 distilled water so the PH ranges 6.8-7.0 I think these tanks are both good conditions for the rams to breed. I’m interested to see if G1 in a much bigger environment can protect the fry but still co exist with the community. G2 will they learn to be good parents and raise the fry? In either tank the parents must raise the fry. If neither are successful I will change plans but I think both will be successful.
  3. How do you know if eggs are fertilized or not? My golden rams just were caught laying eggs.
  4. CARE Forum Fish Breeders: If there was _just one species of fish_ you could breed in large quantity and for profit, devoting your entire fishroom to it alone forevermore, what species would you choose today, and why? I'll add my thoughts after enough of y'all NERMS step up and take a swing.
