I have been in the hobby for about 7 years now, eversince I fell in love with Rainbows. Unfortunately here the market for Rainbows is extremely small and we are stuck with a frustratingly small selection of fish.
Have had various rainbows over the past years. Currently have a 4ft with 8 Boesemani, 3 Kutubu, 1 Western and 1 Hybrit Rainbows. They share the tank with some Panda Cories, Clown, Zebra, Khuli and Polkadot loaches.
Have a love-hate relationship with the small species as they unfortunetely always end up outside the tanks.
During the past month I started breeding with the 3 Kutubus, 2 males and 1 femal, to increase their numbers. A week ago the first 9 fry showed up and kept on popping out of the eggs at such a rate that I have more than 130 at the moment. No breeding mops were used, only drift wood with some moss attatched to it. Currently I'm raising them on egg yoke desolved in tank water and a powder fry food from 1 of our local companies. By the end of the week I will receive some micro worms to give to them.
