Re: FK Galaxy Rasbora Breeding Program #82
Galaxys are not lifebearer and you are not going tu see pregnant mother. I think that best sign is intensive chasing of one female by one or two males (they are recognisable by colorful fins)
I think that Java moss is sufficient as hiding place for small fishes.
My "babies" are swimming close to surface and nobody's paying attention.

As I said before, I have baby rasbora . But I have one of 6 mm lenght and three of three mm lenght. It looks to me that they work overtime.
