Fish breeding is one of the most interesting processes for any aquarist.

Live-bearers breeding peculiarities
Live-bearing fish is the most undemanding to their keeping and breeding, because they possess high vitality and adaptability. Due to the fact, that eggs fertilization is done inside of the fish, they bear developed live fry. It means, that it is necessary to create all necessary conditions for their appropriate feeding and temperature regime at once. They are caught out of the tank and are kept separately from adult species at temperature from 20 to 24 °С.
In order for tank fish breeding to be successful and without any accidents at home conditions, it is necessary to put female fish into the separate tank with small-leaved plants before 3-4 days of supposed fry birth date.

The other popular tank fish group is spawning fish. Before spawning starts, it is recommended to put them, as well, to the separate “spawning tank” with warmer water and longer “daylight” period. Few days later larvae will turn into real fry, which need independent feeding.
