lewk Posted September 21, 2022 Share Posted September 21, 2022 Hey all, I'm pretty new to fishkeeping and breeding fish, so I have a newbie question: How should I go about thinning out fish from a community tank? I have Endlers breeding in a community tank and the population is exploding to the point that it's looking pretty crowded. I was hoping to eventually sell or swap some of these fish, but right now I don't have enough mature fish to move - just a ton of fry and juveniles. I do have an extra tank or two to house extras in temporarily, but I'm concerned that a growout tank will just turn into another community breeding tank rather quickly with these things. I've tried moving some extra males to a male-only tank, but it's been hard to catch them as males showing sexual characteristics are a fairly small percent of the population. I'd love to hear tips from more experienced breeders. What is your process for separating fish from community breeding tanks, especially with fish such as Endlers or Guppies? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
