    My First Spawn...

    Sounds like you have skipped the whole micro worm first foods lol. If they are eating bbs with no problems then leave it as it is. Or you could alternate during feeds incase the smallies cannot properly eat the bbs. Good job and cant wait until they grow out

    Need help with spawning

    How long have they been in there and how did you go about conditioning them prior to attempted spawn? Also i might add that what you are describing sounds like common pre spawning activity and i would not be too worried. It truelly is a love hate relationship with Betta and the female if not both fish will end up with some damage because of it. Be sure to give her lots of hiding places and keep an eye on them. If it seems that they are being too aggressive to one another than seperate and try again in a week. Go with your gut instinct and you cant go wrong.

    what about gold fish in a tropical tank?

    They do best in cooler water but will do well in temperatures upto 20c. It does shorten their life span plus unless you have a monster tank for some goldfish then they are best left in ponds. By keeping them in a confined space such as a tank you are stunting their growth. When this occurs They may appear to stop growing externally but their internal organ continue to grow until cardiac arrest.

    Bristlenose change colour

    brisltenose have been known to change their colouration for no apparant reason. If they are eating well and alive then dont worry too much. Mine do it also. They can change colour at will. Mood or health does not play a factor.

    They always come when you least expect it...

    look for whih fish is missing its gravid spot behind the belly. A young female will not have a huge batch. Batch size depends further on age and number of batches prior to the current one. Congrats on the fry. I would suggest just feeding ground flake and finley chopped blood worm instead of egg yolk. It is messy and if used then use it sparingly. Even better if you could get some micro worm to feed for the first week or some grindal worm. another note on identifying the female that gae birth. Even if you wait for the fry to grow and in hope they turn out like the female you suspect. There is no definate way to be sure as im considering that these guppies are mutts and cross bred? If so then there will be no way possinle to identify the parents. Females can store sperm cells from a single male in one sitting for the next 5 - 7 births. The father could be a male back at the pet shop for all you know. congrats again and when they grow up ill be looing for some. take care.

    A rather ordinary male guppy pic

    loks to be a cobra male. Of course it probebly is a cross breed of something else but the cobra patterning is definately there. I first started with these guys as well. many years ago. beautiful specimen.

    Ideas on community tank?

    Platies, sword tails and mollies are live bearers just like guppies. They are all easy breeders. Corydoras are slightly more challenging. Bristlenose are easy. Pakistani loaches are difficult. gourami are bred just like Betta with the use of a bubble nest. I would use these fish in a community tank together but if breeding guppies or any of the other, i would keep species only tanks with guppies in their own tank reeding and vice versa. Where abouts are you from? If you are near me then ill definatley get some guppies of you in future.

    Ideas on community tank?

    As fr as fish with your guppies in the community tank. I would suggest some Corydora catfish Bristlenose Pakistani loaches Flying fix (Siamese algea eater) Platties Sword tails Dwarf gourami These are just some of the more basic community fish for you to think about. Considering your only just starting up again its best to keep it simple. Plants that i would suggest for a simple low light aquarium Java moss Java fern Anubia Amazon swords Vallisneria Cryptocoryne Banana lilly
