JaredL Posted March 21 Share Posted March 21 Having trouble getting my black skirt tetra to produce eggs. I have separated one female from the community tank to make sure she's getting plenty to eat. -Feeding live bbs, frozen blood worms, and frozen brine shrimp. It has been 2 weeks of heavy feeding with no visible results. -Tank parameters: Temp 72 (according to accurate thermometer, heater reading not accurate), TDS 190, ph 6.8, see attached pic of test strip for other info. Tank is a 3 week old setup using sponge filter and plants from a 3 year seasoned tank. I'm almost certain this is a female as I have 5 others and believe I can see clear differences between the sexes. It's an older female (probably 3 years) that came with a group of fish I adopted 4 months ago from a "less attentive" fish keeper. Pics are right after feeding, so she's normally not as round as shown. Hoping someone on here can give some ideas to trigger egg production as I feel I've hit a dead end. Let me know if there's other info I can provide. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
