    Question Cardinal Tetras Spawning!


    0 Not allowed!
    So I noticed my cardinals acting weird and swimming around erratically and started watching them to see what was going on. They started separating into pairs, doing this crazy twirl dance around each-other, and then eggs started floating around! I've never witnessed cardinals spawning before, it's pretty crazy. I thought they were all about to go belly up until I saw the eggs. I didn't think it was usual for cardinals to spawn in a community tank? I don't expect any eggs to make it since I have cories, but if I were to set up a breeding tank do you guys think I might actually get fry? I've read it's really hard to get cardinals to breed in captivity since most in the pet trade are wild caught. Or might they now be out of eggs for awhile? They released a lot last night, how long should I wait before trying to get them to spawn in a breeding tank? I really wish I had a turkey baster right now, I would've tried to suck up some of the eggs and hatch them, but oh well.

    If there's lights on the tank well, I'm sorry but you can forget about them then. Light kills these eggs.
    Have a google, breeding neons is well documented and these are almost identical.
