Re: Gardneri Breeding
Thanks for the response. Actually today I found about 20 eggs. I am
curious though if anyone has noticed any correlation with
diet/lighting/water chem. and breeding rate in gardneri. I am trying to
take notes in an attempt to find a pattern.
The eggs I do have look like they are developing internally, but there is a
bit of fuzzy matter attched to the outside. Acri-flavine has been added to
the water...enough to give it a green tint.
