    Thought I would post a pic of my rack of breeder tanks and pics of some of the fish in them

    [​IMG]

    top tank; 10 gal with 12 dario dario fry, sorry no pic of those, they are just to small.

    next row is 2 empty 15 gal longs, will be fry tanks soon.

    next row; emerald cories, neolamps

    Funny thing is... having a show tank just never makes up for the fun of having a rack... weather it's used for breeding or plants or what ever.

    Nice setup bro! What kinda water are you breeding your fishes in? RO, rain or other?

    Breeding tanks are lots of fun. The cories are laying eggs everyday now. The others are recent purchases so no breeding yet. The neos and the royals should be breeding soon.

    The neos are in straight tap water as they like the harder water. The others are in 1/2 and 1/2 ro and tap, then I brew a peat moss tea that I use for water changes.

    They are fed with blood worms, brine shrimp, flake but the baby darios are fed live daphena and grindal worms.

    I like your rack. I was woundering what kind of rack it is and where I can get one like that.

    Now I would've phrased that a little better :)

    Looks cool. I only 1 little breeding setup and am very jealous of your...setup.

    I like that statement also, and I promise to take it the right way!

    The rack is actually out of an old Walmart when they took out their fish dept. I'm getting another one in about a week to.

    Aquasaur Thanks for the compliment. Coming from you that means a lot to me. I hope to use the second rack and start collecting killies again. Got my first set. Dagatii fry. and you know the how the story goes from there.

    Amazing you can keep it at only 1 breeding setup :))
    Last time I did breeding, my number of tank explode to 16 tanks 8) and then my son born, start neglecting the breeding tank. Now all stop and focus on Aquascaping ;)
