Breeding newbie

Hey guys I was interested in getting into breeding fish. What's an approximate age for a fish you want to start breeding?

Livebearers!!!

They will breed of u have a male and female

Or is u get just females one might turn into a male to keep the process along

U might often buy a livebearer Prego so be ready for fry!

Livebearers include

Mollies
Guppies
Platys
Swordtails
And endlers

Most of which are a few bucks a piece and are common, small , and quick breeding

See the link I my signature for more info!

I haven't breed tiger barbs before

All you would need is 1 male for every 2-3 females so he Dosent stress her out

Lots of hiding spaces for the fry I use java moss

If you want to use a breeder box or trap I'd say no because it can stress out the female an Kill the babies

Do you mean the breeders box? Like the one that floats in the original tank ? I only use them for fry then I move them to another tank for raising . The other tank is optimal you can always just put a lot of Judy holes for the fry and do it the natural way
