Hi Peter,

Pro-more is of human grade..pharmacy grade....consisting mainly vitamins and proteins on a specially adjusted ratio to induce an effect. It is not a steriod, hormone....testosterone or estrogen nor .

It has been proven by many breeders and it make sense to use it to ensure spawn efficiency and boost up the cytotoxic cells to fight any invasion.

I said this and I'm saying it again...

Take care,
Andrew :angel:

Afshin,

You can just use an air line into the breeding tank and keep it as it is as long as you like...for breeding purposes and is easy to handle.

MB is to protect the eggs from fungus not protect the eggs as in term of brooders protection.

When you put in the MB, you are directly making a change to the environment and that may stress the parents and most cases, the reaction to your action is to eat up the eggs. Therefore, when you put MB, it is advised to put in wire mesh to prevent the parents from eating up the eggs.

Also important is to put an air line 1 inches or 25mm near to the eggs to help in giving more aeration as the parents fanning is restricted by the wire mesh.

You can refrain from using MB if your eggs are laid far apart from each other or that all the eggs are fertilized and are growing with fetus. That is why some disagree on using MB because of the few successes they had.

If you are those who are contented with occasional failures...and occasional average of 15 to 70 wrigglers.....you can forget about MB.

We are talking about success here...and if the male can fertilise successfully, using pro-more, using MB and using Wire mesh....we are talking about an average of 150 to 500 fry per spawn.

Take care,
Andrew :angel:

Thanks again Andrew
I just mail him to order Pro-More
Another thing :
Can you tell me how much MB should I add to each liter of water? I like your method but I canÂ’t control the amount of MB. I can make 1gr/liter solution and use it as a mother solution. Can you tell me how mach of this mother solution can I add to each liter of tankÂ’s water?
Thank you again

O.k. Afshin,

If you want to make stock solution...that's great but best to use distilled water to mix.

For 100 litre of water, you put in 150 mg of Methylene blue.

To make stock solution, add 15 gm of MB to 1 litre of distilled water. Shake well and keep. When you want to use, use 10 millilitre for every 100 litre of water. If the quantity of water is 60 litre, you use 6 ml of stock solution.

Take care,
Andrew :angel:

Hi buddy :welcome:
The other thing you should know is”
I use the mixture of RO and tap water for breeding tank and WC 50% of it about 10 hour before hatching with only tap water to make it harder. The reason is against deformities.
What is your idea about it? :angel:

It should be ok, Afshin,

Important is that you must have tap water with mineral added...not just RO water.

Never use 100% RO water.


Have a nice weekend,
Andrew :angel:
