How to encourage blue ram spawning?

Recommended Posts

Spawning them is easy....but you need to be ready to raise the fry

Get a micro worm culture, try hatching some brine shrimp

When you've mastered that...then you are ready to spawn your Rams

They need, soft (rain/RO)water, warm water, live food(black worms)

If you are going to make the effort to spawn and raise Rams

It takes no more effort to raise good ones as it does poor ones

It pays to start with quality fish....

Are you sure they're male and female? Feed them up with live foods ( mozzie larva does wonders, feed more then they can eat- blk worms too - this helps them think theres an abundance of food and that its a good safe time to breed) and frozen as well as normal good quality flake/pellets/bits. PH 6.8 and blkwater stuff does wonders. Warm water, 28-29 is good for awhile then when it rains, or if you have rainwater saved, do a water change with the colder water and bang. :)

If you get a small terracotta pot and lay it on its side in a cnr of the tank and a flat round stone in front of it and another flat stone nearby it'll help them with a breeding location. If they already have a spot they seem to favour, stick it in there. Keep an eye on the gudgeons as they can be a pain in the rrrs and harass like you wouldn't believe esp if they r thinking of breeding themselves...or even males just doing the territory thing ( although they can be peaceful too, it depends) when they lay, the bn will eat the eggs potentially/ probably. If the fish are happy the neons should be all over the place. If there's a stress factor they'll be more tightly schooled. I'd get rid of the gudgeons and put in rummynose and use them as a gauge of water conditions ect.

And when they breed expect them to have 2-3 go's at getting right.

You could also add a second female...

Thank you! Very helpful. I don't think the gudgeon are a problem as the rams hate them and scare them off on sight. And the neons are spread everywhere. The rams also like a spot in between 2 plants so I'll put a terracotta plant in there. BN are breeding themselves so they stick to that.

Cheers!
