Breeding rice fish- starting numbers?


Recommended Posts

Need some advice regarding some rice fish I am getting from a fellow hobbyist. If you had to choose, which is the better option for starting your own breeding colony?

A) 4 adults (3 female, 1 male)

B) 20 fry about 0.5"

They will unfortunately need to be shipped across the country so I am thinking the adults are the better choice, but I am worried about losing the lone male. Thoughts?

(I could also get both but... I am trying not to be too greedy lol But if you think thats the best option, please let me know!)

I’d definitely take the fry. They’ll adapt to your water better.

Speaking of breeding what’s ur best way to control guppy fry population In ur tanks? I got shrimp in that tank too but trying to just control the guppies cause they seem to have fry every month lol and got like 10 females TIA
