View Full Version : New smaragdinas

I bought a breeding pair of smaragdinas a couple days ago, and just wondering how long I should wait before attempting to breed them? Should I give them the usual quarantine time of one month to make sure they're healthy?

The photos are of the male, I'm in love:)

A general guideline for breeding Omnivorous or carnivorous fish is to feed them plenty of live and frozen foods for several weeks before breeding them.

Yes, but they were already trying to breed where I got them from, they'd had to be seperated because their tank was too small to allow it, so they're already in a breeding mood.
