About Breeding Aquarium Fish
Fish breeding is a popular hobby for aquarium owners. It is on occasion an accidental hobby. However, there is much enjoyment in raising the fry and watching them learn to swim and eat and grow.
Fish reproduce in two ways: They lay eggs, or they bear live young.
Live bearing fish include mollies, swordtails, and guppies. The babies appreciate a bit of cover in which to hide, so they are not swallowed by adults in the tank.
Egg layers produce young in a variety of ways. Tetras and barbs will lay eggs into the gravel, which are fertilised by the male fish as they sink. Other egg layers will carefully spawn on surfaces where the eggs will attach themselves. Then there are bubble nests, familiar to just about anyone who has a betta fish.
No matter what type of fish you have, you might consider getting the proper equipment if you decide to breed them.
