    Default Black skirts breeding?

    0 Not allowed!
    So, I have 9 black skirts in my 30G along with 5 platies (all females). There was once a gourami but I transferred him to my 100G.

    Now that the gourami is gone, my tetras are all acting a little weird. In the morning, before the lights come on, they will start chasing each other, non-stop. Though I do not see any damage on them, I think they are disturbing my platies as they swim really fast and all over the place.

    Does this mean they're breeding? Is this normal or not (if not breeding)? I searched the net but didn't find any info if this is actually how they breed.

    Tetra's are early morning spawners. If you want babies, put a pair in a breeding tank with a sponge filter, a tall plastic plant in the corner for them to spawn in and let them do their thing for a few hours. And then remove the adults before they eat the eggs.

    So they are indeed spawning? Thanks LH! Just wondering about it. I am not really breeding them by intention so I guess I'll just let them be.
