    Default mosquitofish breeding

    0 Not allowed!
    ok I'm new here so still trying to figure out how the website works and all but any way I have breed mosquitos before but back then I had a tank just for breeding them and my mom won't let me have another tank so I'm stuck with a 10 gal for like a year till we move again so now I have to use a breeder box that is way to small but any way one of my female mosquito fish had 3 fry overnight but I think she had more but ate them so not sure but three are alive and in a top fin 3 way breeder box with some gravel, anacharis and a fake plant and I feed them the yolk of a hard boiled egg and there are eating it but my problem is my other female is pregnant to and I think she is going to have her fry in a couple days but I can't put another tank up and the breeder has the 3 fry in it so what should I do?

    you could get a gallon tupperware container with lid for a few dollars. just leave it cracked open for air, put an airstone in there, etc.
    Current tanks:
    37G FW - 3 Pearl Gourami, 4 Black Mollies, approximately 20+ Molly Fry, 5 Assassin Snails | 10G Planted FW - 14 Molly Fry, rocks, DW and an Anubias Nana - journal

    my mom won't let me use any or her Tupperware so I may just do it the hard way and catch the babies when they come out and put them in the breeder box.

    Any plastic container she is throwing away? heck cut a gallon milk jug in half and use that if need be (gotta know how to work with non-fish people lol)
