Recently acquired some orange medaka rice fish. I've read they are prolific egg layers that do well in pond type setups. I'll be keeping them in moderately planted tank 20 long, with a few different species of plants, including a large portion of java moss and a big clump of floating riccia. Unfortunately, I do have snails so I'm thinking they will be a problem.
Looking for some insight for breeding. I have not put a spawning mop in yet, but have seen the largest female carrying eggs. Does anyone know if the parents predate pretty hard on their young? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
