Breeding Neon Tetras..... A Fresh Start

Rate this Entry
I decided to start over with this project and have been cycling a 10 gallon tank for the last 3 weeks using an already cycled sponge filter and some panties stuffed with established substrate so we are good to go now.
This tank is setup different than the last tank and hopefully it will stop the adult fish from eating the eggs. I have made a false bottom using egg crate and plastic mesh so that the eggs will fall through and land safely on the bottom where i should be able to see them (thats the plan anyway)

I have placed 7 neon tetras inside the tank, 5 female & 2 Males so im hoping within the next week i will have eggs.

    Unforunately i had to shut this setup down due to moving house. I have a basement area now that i will begin to start these breeding again. The setup you see above did give me 3 fry that survived and are swimming happily around a 20 gallon as I type
