AW: Nematolebias whitei
I also have N. whitei. This fish is very easy. When you have eggs in peat
(peat = kind of earth), you have to let them half dry and then in a plastic
bag for 3 months. If it is longer it is no problem.
When the 3 months are over, you put the peat (peat = kind of earth) with the
eggs in a small water container. A couple of hours later, the fish will
hatch (hatch = come out of the egg).
Then you have to take the fish out of the container with the peat (earth).
This is difficult. I do it like this: I take the container with peat and
water and fish and put in a white bucket (or large container). I put water
in the large container just a litle bit over the small container. Just 2-3
millimeters more water. Then I wait. The fish will swim out of the container
with the peat in the large container. When many are out, I take the
container with peat out. Then I put the water from the large container into
the aquarium together with the fish. Then I put again the container with
peat in the large container and put water in just 2-3 mm more than the
small container so that the fish can swim out...
The small fish will eat only living food. I start normally with paracemia
(small animals about 0,1 mm big) and with mikro worms. A couple of days
later, I feed with living baby Artemia. The first 2-3 weeks I have no filter
in the tank. Then I put one in with very little current (current =
circulating water). You have to make often water changes so that the fish
are not sick. If you feed with Artemia, it is better if you put a little
salt in the water (1 small spoon for 5 litters of water). Like this the
Artemia live longer. Dead Artemia make the water dirty.
When the fish are 1,5-2,0 cm big, you can start to feed them with frozen
food. or with grindal worms. When the fish are big they will also eat dry
When the fish are 2-3 cm big, they will want to lay eggs. Many people say to
separate the males and the females and put them together when they are
bigger. I let them together all the time. To make them lay eggs, you need a
plastic container with a lid (lid = cover to close the container). You make
a whole of about 3-5 cm in the lid (cover). You put 1-2 small stones in the
container and put the peat (earth) in it. (the stones you put to make the
container go under water). The peat (earth) you must put in water a couple
of days before so that it goes under water.
When the weather is warmer (here is minus 5 Celcius), I will send some mikro
worms and Grindals to Mindaugas. I can also put some for you.
If you have some questions, let me know.
