NANFA--breeding fish
Fri, 28 Feb 2003 07:39:15 EST

I accelerated the light and temperature on my swamp darters. They started
breeding Feb. 9 and hatching by the 18th. The fry are now eating baby brine
shrimp and growing well. The parents are still laying eggs regularly and I am
gathering and counting. At the same time my bluespotted sunfish started
spawning I am having a hard time keeping any of them alive, but the parents
keep going. Hopefully I will get lucky. My candy, banded and rainbow f4's
are snug in the cold room at 44 degrees and 11 hours of light. Another month
before I start working on them. Is anyone else having luck with breeding
their native now?
