View Full Version : Something to breed

11-23-2006, 11:52 PM
Hey, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what I could breed in my 55gal. I dont care if its SA or CA but I would like something that breeds fairly often. I already breed convicts so I would like something new. I like FMs but heard they dont breed very often at all. Thanks alot in advance.

What are FM's? Any of your livebearers breed quite easily all by themselves.

Kribs are always nice. I just gave away my Nics (they never successfully bred) but they were said to be great parents. It was hard to get a male and female though. Convicts breed easily, but most say TOO easy. Then, like guppies, your overrun.

From what I have heard Jack Dempsey's are not as easy as convicts, but still not too hard. They would be fine in a 55 as well. You would have to devote the tank to just them though.

Hey guys, sorry its been a few days since my last posts I have just been really busy. FM is a firemouth. I think it is a toss up between the jack dempsey, firemouth and angels. Out of the three jacks are the only one ive kept in the past (have a 9" jd now) so maybe thats what I should stick with until I can read more on the other two options. Thanks alot for the input everyone.
