Minnow Breeding: Creating the Environment.

May 16, 2008 at 10:27 pm 2 comments

May 16 2008: After releasing the frogs and ending up with a spare tank, we’ve decided our next mission will be to try and breed our white cloud mountain minnows. Research has told us there couldn’t be an easier fish to breed, which sounded good to us. So we redesigned the old frog tank and turned it into a breeding tank. The minnows have been transferred from the main tank and we’ve attached spawning mops to the tank (basically strands of wool tied together, creating artificial floating plants for the eggs to stick to.) We’re feeding them live food; daphnia (or waterfleas) which we’re keeping in a container and feeding them a few every day. And now all we have to do is wait and see if they really are easy to breed.
