I am trying to learn how to breed. So far I have not managed a controlled spawn, for I did not expect them to breed so young. They just decided to be "knotty" and made me rush to buy 2 very large intex ponds, to put in their babies before they eat them all.
Yesterday they did it again!
Who the parents are I havent got the slightest idea, but they have been at it 5 times so far (maybe even more).
Most of the babies are GR...(thanks God!), for mutts look better when They are GR. I have all tribes here:
How they will look when they grow...no idea! And what they exactly are...no idea too.
The first 3 spawns I just spend the whole day in the pond catching babies, but number 4 I collected the eggs...lots of eggs, and managed to kill most of them. I had no live food, and had some dragon fly larvae in the pond 2-3" long that ate most of the babies before I saw them.
Meanwhile I made filters for them (so far mechanical only) but will do the biological tomorrow.
The pond is 3.6 meter diameter, and I am using 0.75KW swimming pool pump.
I made boxes (nets) inside the pond and I sorted them by sizes...
I only had egg yolk in the beginning, now they are larger and I give them every thing: pellets (tetra) flakes, chicken fish , tuna from a tin...(which I chew and spit inside) for short I am like a spitting cobra.
My dog is also so spoiled that i have to chew all his food or he refuses to eat...(yorky) so that is what I do for my pets!
Here they are. If U can guess what they are....I would be very grateful!
Any advise will be appreciated too.
