billango Posted June 24, 2022 Share Posted June 24, 2022 So I have stumbled into an interest in fish breeding and was thinking of buying some fish that I'd specifically want to breed. I've done some looking on aquabid and such and have seen fish sold as "pairs". I've seen the same label at aquarium co-op as well. I was wondering if this means that the fish are a proven breeding pair, or if that just means it is one male and one female and they haven't necessarily bred together before. If it does mean they are a proven breeding pair, how does a breeder identify that it is these two fish specifically that are breeding if they are within a group of fish? Do breeders separate a male and a female in isolation and see if they breed and if they do, can then label them as a pair? Also are fish selective in which other fish they breed with, so if you did have to isolate a male and a female, maybe the female wouldn't like the male and you'd have to try another male? Thanks in advance! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
