    Bap: Ophthalmotilapia ventralis (Chituta)

    If I have the time and energy and there is a interest I might bag up some:
    Black skirt tetras
    Odessa (?) barbs
    swordtails


    I will have the breeding group of 12, which just started breeding, for sale for $250 after I turn in my bap.

    Jeff - what conditions do the shrimp need?

    I don't know how to spawn a tetra. I can't even tell the males and females apart. So I have no idea.

    Sarah these spawn in classic manner. After separating the sexes fattening up for a couple week. Put them in 75 - 80 degree RO or rain water over Marbles, screens or plants to prevent parents from eating eggs. The fry are fairly large so can eat baby brine shrimp as first food. The eggs hatch very quick like 24 - 36 hours. Female have larger bellies (eggs) and male tends to be darker colored. I have spawned this species.

    Yes, it is!

    I will have some small African Clawed Frogs Tadpoles. They are albino. They will need space to morph. my instruction to raise them. No bubblers or filtration. My last batch all died when I tried this. Mid seventies will work but many heat up to 80 to speed the process. I use green water but there needs to be places for food to be scraped up. A bit of algae on bottom of tank helps. There can tadpoles power food. You must be very careful to not overfeed or ammoinia spike will kill them. I would use I would suggest a 2.5 0r 5 gallon tank and gradually add water over several days. The tads will grow to 2.5 or 3 inches before they morph to 3/4 inch froglet. The froglets will eat small pellet high protein food. Of course they will eat daphnia or black worms. Of course Xenopus Express sinking pellets will work.

    I will have some wild types when I turned the BAP.
