RE: Species Maintenance List
this method also. But it does tend to provide for natural selection.
Usually the dominant male gets all of the girls. You can usually identify
him as the guy hogging the breeding spot. The losers rarely get a
date. On the up side however, over the course of time dominance does
sometimes change hands and another guy fish gets lucky.
What I have
done in the past is basically "gang spawn" species using 4 or 5
5 or 6 females in a 10 gallon tank (depends on the size of the
course - adjust tank size accordingly). I feel that the fish will
spawn with each other, basically ensuring some degree of genetic
within my population. This works with both peat spawners and mop
It also spreads out aggression and actually minimizes it IMHO.
