even if i only ahve 3 reds in my 55g, they wont pair off?RhomZilla said:Beforehand you have to get lucky with a pair. A 55 gal wouldn't be sufficient and is too cramped up for any of them to even want to mate. Best way is to have them in a bigger tank to pair off.. once they breed for the first time, they will surely do it again.. then thats when you should leave the pair in a 55 gal.
First: how can you see one of yours is a female: I don't want to argue, I'm just wondering :smile:tyourkie66 said:even if i only ahve 3 reds in my 55g, they wont pair off?
im pretty sure that one of them is a feamale.
do you think that that since there is only four fish in my 55g that they will breeed?

Wheter your fish will breed depends wheter the fish find the tank conditions suitable to breed. If they are right, you have a sexually mature pair, and they are used being together, your fish might breed as well.
It's just that you can never say on forehand wheter they'll do it or not: it's entirely up to them. All you can do is trying try some tricks to stimulate them to get it off, but there's no guarantee. See the link posted earlier in this thread: it contains a number of tips and useful info...
I think I have an idea which site that was.... :tyourkie66 said:i was guessing because i read something on another site that said when young the females are less agressive and go to get their foood after the males. that they dont fight and when fightin occurs they usally stay away.
if this is wrong then i read some false info.
