Re: Re: Problem with Aggie


Hi! Yea, I have to agree that spawning the fish in a
natural setup--the planted tank is the best. I haven't
put any of my breeders (apistos, angels, killies) in
my planted tanks. Not many fry/eggs can actually
survive in the planted tanks since there are many
fishes come after them in the planted tanks.
