I have a 10Gal QT tank that is sitting with nothing in it but salt water. I was thinking that I can keep some small fish in there, like damsels to keep up the bio-load until I need the tank to treat my reef fish. Then I got another idea: how about I not only keep small fish in there for the bio-load, I breed them too, so this way I have live food for my Eel and my Tuskfish.
I mentioned this idea on the chat board, but no-one seems to think that breeding damsels is a good idea. Some people mentioned that mollys spawn very fast and could be slowly introduced to the SG
of seawater. How would I go about acclimating mollys to the SG
of seawater and still have them breed? Is there an endpoint for the SG
that they can tolerate and still be willing to spawn in the tank? Do I need to add sand and plants to the tank for them? Or is my first idea better? Is it possible to breed damsels? If so, how do I go about it?
