QT and Breeding question

Can fish breed in a QT, i was wondering if the copper in the tank water causes the larval fish to die or, stress them out.

What kind of fish? I would think the fish fry would be very sensitive to copper.

Do you mean the tank was treated with copper and you are worried about it leaching back into the water? If you clean it well before you use it you should be fine. I have heard about the silicone being able to absorb copper and release it but I believe that is rare.

a QT tank should be used for just that - QT. Heaven forbid you had a medical emergency and had to immediately treat with treatments that were not compatible with the QT tank inhabitants. That is why QT is recommended to be a basic 10-20G tank with no frills. I would suggest you use a separate breeding tank if that is what you want to do for that. I would definitely have the QT tank always available as a hospital tank. HTH
