Breeding questions again...

Postby saltwater4life » December 4th, 2006, 3:04 pm

Alright i've spent hours reading posts and helpful websites and i read gobies can mate in under a month of being added to there new home and that they can be bred in tanks as small as 10g and 10g reared tank so i was woundering if i went out and bought lets say 4 10g tanks and the one i'd fully set up for the mating tank the other 3 would have filters heaters and buble makers (filters wouldn't be turned on untill the eggs hatch) Do you think this will work or not btw the 3 baby tanks would have black paper over the outside glass untill there ready for lights

anything else i should read?
Please as much info the beter i want to start off right
Thanks Nick
