Re: Blue gularis questions... was sexing F. gardneri fry
I ocasionally get some fry that will water hatch with Blue Gularis. But I
think for any real success there needs to be a dry period. I have let Blue
Gularis go too long without collecting eggs and have a lot that are fully
eyed up. I actually split the last batch and water incubated some and put
the rest on peat. None of the water eggs hatched. I moved them to peat for
only a week, wet the peat, eggs hatched. In water the eggs can get to the
eyed stage and just freeze there for a long time.
I usually breed Blue Gularis in a 5 gallon container. I have tried larger
tanks and get better results in the smaller tank. Privacy seems to help. Too
much commotion around them seems to retard breeding.
Blue Gularis would be a great fish to try after doing gardneri. Good luck.
Fry eat a ton of food, grow quick, and will need careful attention to water
quality as a result.
