As explained above the reproductive cycle natural ... Now we'll do the "artificial" ... Nothobranchius reproduction is based on the following:

1st. - Got a mob of some amateur friend. I recommend www.aquabid.com

2nd. - We soak the eggs with peat as the kind instructions who happened to us ... ask him for the type of water, oxygen pills, dates, if I do not go, I do when we go .... another article, here does not fit all.

3rd. - When we see artemia fry feed them, daphania, microworms, rotifers, grindal minis ...

4th. - Feeding them going until they grow up and have some spectacular specimens.

5th. - Put a group of breeding with a container for commissioning and collect eggs.

6th. - We let the eggs do their diapause and back to item 1

7th. - Would be interesting ... peat distribute any other fans.

If you are interested keep looking information because it is the most interesting.
