Hi breeding B/Ns will be cheaper and more profitable than setting up a marine tank Is he older or younger than you? I got an older brother but he hates fishes??? Next time you got an empty tank waiting for fishes or your next idea,simply place a little fish flake in there,this feeds the bacteria and keeps the tank ready

Haha oh ya hes obsessed with saltwater! We currently have 116$ in the "fish fund" and he estimates we need 200$ for the salt water. Im still pushin hard for the breeding bns because we will make enough money in a few months or year, to get a salt! Haha

Hi GBoy66. Good to see you are saving for a salt water set up, they are expensive to set up and run but worth it If you could get a pair of B/Ns and get them breeding and your local shop was prepared to pay for them it would help the 'fish fund' Are you any where near me? I live in Newbury Berkshire England I have quite a few B/Ns
PS do not post your exact location on the forum

Hi i have two breeding pairs,so i got a tank full of fry from tiny little ones right up to young adults,at the last count had over thirty. It took awhile for the original pair to settle,but once they were in a quieter tank,bred quite easily Fascinating watching the little ones scurrying about

Don't quote me on this, it may be wrong. I remember reading that the albino gene is recessive and the brown (normal colour) is dominant. The shortfin gene is recessive and the longfin is dominant. So if you breed a brown and a albino you will get browns. But if you breed a brown that has genes from a brown and from a albino (it's brown because brown is dominant) with a albino its 50/50 chance you get albinos. An albino will always have albinos with another albino.

Yeah, so if you want albino get both albino. If you want both get one of each and you may get some albino. If you want brown/black get both brown/black and they may throw some albinos if they both have the gene.

Personally I like albino longfins. I have 2 browns and 3 albinos (2 shortfin and 1 longfin).
