Re: [Killietalk] Re: Not too far off topic I hope....
When I was breeding peacocks they liked to have two entrances to their
cave. If they didn't have a choice they would spawn in any cave I
gave them. But if I set up more than one cave, they always chose the
one with 2 entrances.
Also, wipe off any bacterial slime and bleach the caves that have had
fungused eggs. This was discussed the other day relating to
incubating killi eggs. I doubt using a small dosage of acriflavin
would hurt gudgeons.
Got any extra pairs? :) Definitely a fish I want to keep again, just
have to get space and money first.
