Re: Lay up over peat
Hi Dave -
When I bred Blue Gularis (several years
ago), I simply ran the wet peat through a net, squeezed the peat as dry as I
could with my hands, then plopped the resulting mass into a plastic zip-lock
bag. I fluffed the peat up some at that point and looked to see if I could see
any eggs (sometimes I could, sometimes I couldn't), made certain that there was
air in the bag, sealed it and it and put it away.
In most cases, hatches were good using this
technique, and breeding trios over peat for a week in a 5 gal.
Hope the input helps - they're nice

Subject: Lay up over peat
A am rather an rookie with killies. I am
trying to breed my blue gularis. I have read that a good method of
handeling the eggs is to lay them up over peat for 1.5 months. I am a
bit unclear as to what is meant by "lay up over peat". How damp should
the peat be, rather dry as for annuals or more damp. Any advice
would be welcome.
