Re: Gardneri Breeding
KI>Thanks for the response. Actually today I found about 20 eggs. I am

The more live food the better. Mine also seem to be less prolific when
the temperatures get into the 80's (no air conditioning in the house,
I'm afraid). They also seem to spawn better after a large water change.
KI>The eggs I do have look like they are developing internally, but there is a

KI>the water...enough to give it a green tint.
I lost a lot of eggs because I had them in too much light (I think).
Once I moved them to very dim light the eggs didn't fungus and developed
well, with nice healthy fry.
Just my limited observations. Hope it helps.
