Fish Breeder Fry Rack - 210 Gallon - Aquarium Fish Tank
Imagitarium Isolation & Breeder Fish Tank, 8.4" L X 3.7" H X 3.7" Diameter
Lee's Two-Way Breeding Tank keeps newborn fry safely separated from the mother and other aquarium fish. Ideal for guppies, egg-layers and live-bearers, the tank floats freely in the aquarium and features wide side vents for optimal water circulation.
Some aquarists become accidental breeders simply because of the fish they choose for their tank! Many popular aquarium fish that school or shoal can lay eggs or give birth at seemingly spontaneous intervals. Livebearers like guppies and mollies can produce large upwards of 20 fry in a single birth, so learning to manage their care can be very important. Interestingly, while many aquarium fish can gestate and give birth relatively quickly, they also have a tendency to eat their own young.

Guppies are one of the easiest species to care for and breed, as they are pretty durable fish and not very fussy. They can adapt to a wide range of water parameters and tank mates, as long as they do not become overly aggressive or territorial. They are also very beautiful and come in a wide variety of colors and fin shapes. Breeding Guppies come in several varieties including: Wild (gray or olive coloring), Blue (a vibrant blue shade), Blonde (lighter colors with patches of black pigment), or Albino (white or light colors with red eyes). Combining these basic patterns results in amazing coloring and unique fish.The breeding tank offers the huge advantage of allowing you to select the fish you want to reproduce. However, never place a single pair in the tank, as the male will harass the female and even grow aggressive towards her, which is not the behavior desired. The best option is to place a male together with two, or even three, females. This way, the male’s attention will be divided between the females, allowing them to be more relaxed.The community tank can be a difficult place for breeding fish, as adults often like to feast on newly hatched fry. This is why the babies need lots of places to hide until they grow large enough to avoid being eaten. Even the parents can turn cannibalistic, so it is better to keep the young separated from the adults during this time.Some people have had bad experiences with breeder boxes and now only use a breeder net. It is also a good idea to purchase some real or plastic Baby Hide Out or Breeding Grass for the top of the aquarium. The breeding grass is just in case the mother gives birth before you have a chance to put her in the breeder box. The fry will instinctively swim to the top of the aquarium and the breeder grass provides a great hiding place so they won't get eaten by the bigger fish in your tank.
