Tank Mates For Live Bearers In A BREEDING TANK


Recommended Posts

I am currently having three 29 gallons with 6 mollies, 6 platies & 6 Swordtails each respectively

I do keep them with plants [hornwort, java moss, amazon sword & amazon frogbit]

and as you may or may not have guessed i do have really hard water

can I keep  something else in the tank while also being able to spawn them

i also use a matten filter


all suggestions and opinions are welcome

you can breed shrimp and snails along with the live bearers, though tiny shrimp may get picked off. the special thing about otto's is they are pretty much the one fish in this hobby that wont predate young fry either on purpose or accidently. otto's are the safe tank mate for anything that wont eat them.

and what is so special about ottos

Otto's are super cute, great algae eaters. I prefer to keep them in groups of at least 6-8. And they won't eat any fry. I've never kept otto's in hard water though.
