Re: artificial fry raising

Yes I for one do this just because as you have read they do grow faster. Seems to not harm them and they breed just fine when adults. I usually transfer to harder water around a couple weeks old on depending on the species.

Subject: artificial fry raising

Hello all
Just a thought: When raising fry away from the parents or for that matter with the parents, should I slowly harden the water to promote growth? I have heard of discus breeders doing this something about more minerals in the water helping the fish grow faster. Im only talking about going from 20ppm to 150ppm or so. Has anyone tried this it? sure would save on RO.
Thanks Steve
