Having Success With Livebearers - Specifics of Livebearer Husbandry with Greg Sage

Beginning with text photos and satellite images of the wild habitats these fish come from, the talk looks
carefully at every aspect of caring for these fish to achieve their best health, growth and maximum
reproduction.

With many photos and short videos, it is discussed why many that have kept some types of fish for many
years successfully have trouble with livebearers. Tank set upFiltrationPlantsFoodsbreeding and the
3 periods of acclimation the fish go through are discussed. As well, differences between species are
covered, including comparisons of temperature and food requirements.

From information provided at this website, customers have sent beautiful pictures of their tanks to show
how these guidelines result in very attractive tanks, and some are included. As well, the most common
diseases, treatments and medications to have on hand are also discussed.
