Annual diver setups?
I was hoping people could describe what sort of set-up they use for annual
divers. Over the weekend I picked up a pair of A. sp CXCL009. They are
very health and as I normally do I put in my normal set up for divers. For
divers I've been using containers about 4.5 to 7 inches in depth. The
container usually has a top with a hole cut in it to keep as much peat from
flying out as possible. After watching the pair last night, I cann't but
think there has to be a better set up. As soon as they became aware that
peat was in the water they eagerly started looking for a spot to spawn. The
problem with this set up is that it is several inches about the gravel.
That is even after I have dug into the gravel to get it lower. The fish
spent the whole time looking for the peat but never found it and eventually
they started laying eggs on the gravel. I've bred S. flavacaudatus with
this set up and I know eventually they will find the peat but it seems like
a lot of wasted effort for the fish until then. I've thought of several
different set-ups that should work better but as I said I was hoping to get
some ideas that have worked for other people first. Thanks.
In very dry Jacksonville.
