AquariumCentral Posted March 27 Share Posted March 27 DISCLAIMER : I AM NOT MASS BREEDING! I have a 25 gallon tank that I want to use as a birthing/nursery tank. My main tank is an 85 gallon aquarium and holds some fish (the current guppies). First set of questions: How do I cover the filter intake without buying a sponge filter? should I remove the gravel from the tank to get a bare bottom and just fill in with plants? Is this more efficent than a bunch of breeding nets? I also have some basic questions about breeding next set of questions: How do I create pairs? If I just let them free-breed, will they pick better colors? If I let them free-breed, is inbreeding a large issue? How do I pair them up (but not with the same type of guppy) to create a more colorful and valuable guppy? How do I create my own strain of guppy, and how do I know if its a new strain? Am I allowed to name the guppies type despite the name everyone else calls them if I sell them? Am I allowed to name my own strain of guppies? If I name my strain, will other people obay the strain name or not? where do i find the best low price BULK fry food? I have one more unrelated question. I have a 45 gallon tank that I found. could I put the filter from my 25 gallon (its a HOB) onto the 45? I would do this so the space was larger for the fry and so i could divide and have a birthing spot for females and not risk some being eaten. My plan for the birthing and fry tank is, basically a collection box. The first female gives birth, I remove and place her back in main tank, I raise fry. Next female goes into labor, I place her in there with the growing fry so she gives birth, then remove her into the main tank. So on and so forth. I was thinking with the 45, I would divide female into one section so other fry are on the other side, have her give birth, then remove divider. I could also just have the female give birth in the net, then release babies and put her back in main. any better ideas? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
