Cacutoides very seasoned tank, AM and Nitrites reading 0ppm, Nitrates 5ppm Hi friends! Ive recently wanted to try my hand at breeding after running this tank for a long time as a sort of test to see if I can keep plants alive and now want to give some adorable and beautiful fish I love a try. Picked up some A. Cacutoides at my LFS and theyve been doing great in the month or so ive had them. Within the last day or so i noticed the female has relegated herself to one of the caves in the tank and is guarding it fiercely which leads me to believe we may have some eggs on our hands! I just have a few questions based on the circumstances im working with here A) Should I move the female and the cave to a 5g tank i have setup with a thin layer of sand, Java Moss, etc to try and have the highest probability of keeping fry alive in a community tank until theyre old enough to defend themselves/keep the other tetras/male away from the eggs? B) Should I monitor inside the tank as this will be the Apistos first ever spawn together and who knows if theyre going to be good parents at this point to say either or and use this first time as a learning experience in the tank they both know? C) Is there anything im missing here I should look into besides these options? ive been doing alot of research and as always getting mutliple different answers on the same question Really appreciate any extra help or advice I could get as a first time trying to be the godparent of some fish!
