Cinnebuns Posted July 6, 2022 Share Posted July 6, 2022 I'm doing some planning ahead right now. After what I call "the guppy invasion" I hope to end my time with breeding guppies and move onto other species. I will still be keeping them as they are still my favorite fish, but I would enjoy doing multiple species rather than 1 species taking over everything. I would like some input and ideas. The tanks I have is 29, 20T, 10, 10, 10 + a few tanks for backup and hospitals. Other than the guppies, I am currently breeding panda cories, Japanese trapdoor snails, mystery snail clutches (occasionally might hatch one) out of the 29 and blue neo shrimp along with panda cory fry in a 10. I plan to continue those. This would mean I would have a 20 and 2 10s available after the guppies have stopped invading. The more species I can breed out of a tank the better within reason of course. This is the ideas I have so far: 20 gallon: gold white cloud minnows + medaka rice fish. Dunno if something can be added to this. Possibly hatch small mystery snail clutches? I would only trust small or half ones. 10 gallon A: reticulated hillstream loaches + bristlenose pleco. I already have a male/female pair of hillstream loaches that display mating behavior in the 29. I have a feeling they have spawned but likely with the guppies, snails and cories the eggs and fry have a low chance of survival. Idk if these 2 species would work together. Maybe the hillstream would work in with the 20 gal? They are a fish that like cooler waters. 10 gallon B: Killfish (maybe gardnerii?) + juvenile panda cories. I assume there wouldn't be an issue with these 2 together. The idea would be once the cories get full finage and a little size they move from the shrimp tank to here.
