    Default Flynns Breeding System

    Ok. I guess I'll let the cat out of the bag. I wanted to wait untill I had one full success of a pair before I shared my breeder system. Why? Because so many people have told me that it won't work. but how can we move forward with out taking chances? why am I sharing now? because i'm haveing a hard time filling out my paperwork for the 60DPS report with the MBI.
    I took a fish system like you find at stores and tweeked it a bit to fit my needs.

    this is my system

    this is the larval True Perulas morning after hatching. 2011 08 20225647 - Flynns Breeding System
    there is a homemade divider put in so that the greenwater and the rotifers stay in the two sections with the larval fish. the first spout with the water coming from the sump has a valve on it to slow the water to a mild drip, the second one is just plugged.
