PostPosted: Sun Apr 02, 2006 7:07 pm Post subject: Golden eggs!!.....Almost there. Reply with quote

 Iam  talking  about  a  pair  of  gold  gouramis  that  i  bought  the  other  day.
 
 I  introduced  both  pair  into  a  50litres  tank  at  the  same  time.After  30hrs  i  noticed  the  bubble  nest  under  an  almond  leaf.Every  15mins  or  so  the  male  and  female  come  under  the  nest  and  the  rest  is  similar  to  bettas.
 
 So  is  the  female  laying  her  eggs  every  15mins.Or  should  she  do  it  more  often?She  hides  in  a  small  earthen  pot  while  the  male  guards  and  repairs  the  nest.The  female  is  still  nice  and  fat.How  long  before  the  spawning  is  completed?
 
 They  are  not  feeding  on  the  tubifex  worms  that  i  have  placed  inside  the  tank.

 Hi  ,
 Great  to  hear  that  you  have  a  breeding  pair.
 Just  a  doubt  ,  How  are  gouramis  sexed  ?I  saw  some  lovely  gouramis  at  kolathur  btw.
 i  doubt  you  should  place  food  during  breeding  time,  because  tubifex  especially  may  contain  parasites  which  may  not  be  too  good  for  the  eggs  or  the  fry  more  over  uneaten  food  may  start  decaying  and  may  still  cause  problems.adding  tubifex  may  also  give  the  parents  a  tendancy  to  eat  the  fry.

 @aidscontrol;  sounds  like  pre  spawning  ritual  to  me.  The  actual  spawning  takes  a  couple  of  hours...  depending  on  the  fish,  the  pre  spawning  displays  and  mock  embraces  last  for  cauple  of  days.
 
 @ravindranak;  the  Trichogaster/Trichopterus/Colisa  gouramies  can  be  easily  sexed  by  looking  at  the  dorsal  fin.  A  male's  fin  will  extend  all  the  way  to  the  tail.  Pearl  gouramies  can  be  sexed  by  the  long  extensions  to  the  male's  anal  fin.

 Yahoo!!!!!!!!!  Cheering    Cheering  
 
 I  got  the  fry  last  nite.Icame  back  home  and  found  numerous  black  small  gouramis  swimming  about.  Clapping  
 
 I  have  removed  the  female.The  male  is  defending  the  fry  and  gulping  down  large  number  of  fry  at  a  time  and  returning  them  to  the  bubble  nest.
 
 The  newly  hatched  are  quite  big.And  i  noticed  that  they  can  swin  against  a  current  generated  by  the  aerator.They  remail  attached  to  leaves  and  the  sides  of  the  glass  most  of  the  time.
 
 I  have  tried  infusoria.Ihave  a  bottle  with  white  cloudly  water  after  50  hrs.
 The  water  seems  to  be  little  consistent  and  doesnot  flow  easily.
 
 However  iam  planning  to  feed  them  egg  yolk  and  daphnia  after  3  days.
 
 What  i  want  to  know  from  you  guys.
 
 1.Should  i  start  feeding  them  after  48  hrs.
 2.When  do  i  remove  the  male.
 3.Should  i  change  the  water  once  now.I  haven't  changed  for  the  past  4  days.
 
 Now  back  to  my  observation  post.HEHE

 1.Should  i  start  feeding  them  after  48  hrs.
 2.When  do  i  remove  the  male.
 3.Should  i  change  the  water  once  now.I  haven't  changed  for  the  past  4  days.
 
 
 1)  No  ground  rule  for  starting  feeding.  Watch  out  for  their  yolk  sacs.  Once  that  get  used  up,  you  should  stat  feeding.  (Anywhere  from  3  to  6  days.)
 
 2)  You  can  remove  the  male  1)  once  you  see  the  fry  getting  too  much  out  of  control  for  him,  swimming  everywhere  in  the  tank.  2)  After  all  the  fries  have  oriented  horizontally.
 
 3)  No  need  to  change  the  water  as  yet  (if  50  litres).  DO  REMOVE  THE  LEFTOVER  WORMS!  You  can  start  changing  wwater  after  about  a  week  or  week  and  half.  Earlier  if  dosing  with  egg  yolk.
 
 Regards,
 amod.

 90%  of  the  fry  is  dead.
 
 I  fed  them  with  egg  yolk  and  daphnia.They  never  took  a  bite  at  it.
 I  put  the  aerator  on  with  20%  capacity.My  tank  is  heavily  planted.
 
 Anyone  know  why  they  all  died.

 All  the  un  eaten  food  will  cause  ammonia  spike,  Better  to  feed  some  brine  shrimp  or  micro  worms  since  they  dont  pollute  the  water  much.  micro  worms  will  stay  live  in  the  water  for  quit  some  time  hence  will  not  cause  ammonia.

 sorry  for  your  loss...  Sad  
 
 but  boy,  cheer  up  you  have  a  breeding  pair.    Prepare  yourself  well  before  you  chose  to  mate  your  fishes  again.    Gowrami  fry's  are  tooo  small  that  they  definitely  need  Infusoria/green  water  as  their  food  for  atleast  2  days  of  their  free  swimming  stage.
 
 I  do  not  suggest  egg  yolk  unless  you  are  sure  you  can  do  water  changes  without  much  hassile.    Otherwise,  I  suggest  microworm  culture  after  2-3  days  of  free  swimming  or  BBS.
 
 Better  luck  next  time  mate...  Thumb Up
