Thursday 9/2/2021 This will be my first experience with breeding an egg scattering fish. Only started researching them on 8/31/2021 Tuesday, very late night. Will be documenting all phases; research, testing, set up, parent selection, spawning, birth, fry care, grow out, and placement in show tank. RESERCH 8/31 Read 2 different care guides after google search. Not an abundance of material on rummynose specifically. May need to find more info on egg scatters in general. Watched video by Teds fishroom, interesting video but it was all about a technique for a breeding tank set up where he removes bottom from 5G adds mesh and places inside a 10G, for now will not be using this method. 9/1 watched video from LRB aquatics showed how to make a mesh basket, for a breeder box. Fairly sure I will be using this technique, not exactly his set up but very similar. Also watched video by Marks Aquatics again very interesting video and will certainly be using a lot of tips from this.NEED TO REWATCH!! Started checklist 9/2 testing water seasoned tank as close to set up as possible; hardness=300+ Buffer=220 PH= 8.1 spring water (out of bottle)hardness =100 seems high, buffer=0-20 really low?, PH 6.4 verry nicce added air stone and heater to water will test again in 24 hours.
