 Ok so im poking around again looking for things and whatnot and found this

ok so im looking to set up a take to possibly breed some simple fish and all and would like some info and what not if there is any. i want to breed either rosey red minnows or comet gold fish. idk. i want a project to do since im bored at home day in and day out.

a few questions.
the tank im hoping to get is what it looks like to be a 50+ gallon tank.
how many minnows could be possible to fit in the tank? comet golds?

what food would be best for minnows?

how long before i get fry?

are ghost shrimp ok around minnows and comet golds?

i hope to get as much info as i can and soon. thanks a billion

usually you want 1 inch of fish per gallon but tpersonally that rule only applies to goldfish and if u have a great filter system that rule wouldnt apply either shrimp n golds i wouldnt recommend if u wer trying to breed the guppies because they will eat the ffry n guppies breed every 28 day hope i help
srry bout my spelling i do this quick n respond fast i f there is any other questions u need just ask thx

I wouldn’t recommend comets, as they require around 55 gallons per fish. I learned this the hard way. I had a comet goldfish in a 10 gallon and she died of nitrate poisoning and stunted growth from the tank size. O.O I’d go with the minnows, but livebearers are much easier to breed.
