Re: Gardneri Breeding
Keep the eggs in a dark place.
If fungus is a problem, remover the bad eggs, pour the eggs to one side of the dish and paper towel dry the bowl, repeat on the other side. This removes some of the bacteris and fungus from the dish.
If you are using acriflavine, I like to change the water after three or four days. I remove the bad eggs and replace the water with fresh water.
My most important stimulus in breeding is barometric pressure. The fish breed right before or after a rainstorm.
Catherine mentioned keeping the killies warm, but I like to keep them a little cooler. 70s are about right for me. At 80 they do breed more, but they also get hungry between feedings and pick on each other or go looking for an egg snack. I would suggest a water temp of 75. Best of luck..bob
