    Well, from my experience, you wont' need to seperate males for a few weeks. They are slow growers. Get yourself lots of containers and maybe look for potential homes before you do let them breed. As well, when you do have fry, water changes are very important; even more-so than normal.

    thats ok, and HI

    and ohk, yes i know the water changes are a needed thing, so when should i start the water changes? and howmuch should i be changing?

    and to my question at the bottom of my first post,
    do you get males more than females

    like i breed rats and the persentage of males to females is basicaly 1:3

    so we get way more males than females (if any females at all)
    more females then males is unusual and lucky

    cheers

    hi there!ive read all these posts and nobody seems to answer your questions so i will.ive been breeding fighters for a while now and,as we speak i have 2 seperate broods growing really well.the trick with breeding is water changes and great food.i do 50-70% water changes on my fry tanks daily and feed newly hatched brine shrimp 3 times a day.something to remember:you need to feed the fry infusoria till they can fit the shrimp in their mouths.half boil a small potato,cut it up into 4 pieces and put into a jar with a lid.add tank water till almost full,close and put in sunlight.within a week or so,the water will turn milky.its ready to feed to the fry then.if you do the daily water changes,fry should be able to eat shrimp on day 3.fry excrete a growth stunting hormone that slows their growth rate down,so water changes remove the hormone and allow them to grow 5 times faster than if you didnt.as to the sex ratio,it depends on the size of your fish.if the female is larger than the male then youll get mostly males,and vice versa.if they are the same size,then you should get a 50/50 split.it has something to do with survival instinct.fighters usually mate with the biggest and best so if u have a small male and a large female she will assume that there is a shortage of males and produce more to even things out again.seperating the brood isnt nescessary,and might stress them out.when they start flaring each other and you can tell males from females,then you can jar the males.if you want to know anything else,email me at liz.ladybug@yahoo.com.
