Fish Breeding Made Simple!

If you have never bred fish before, you will be amazed how simple it can be with the help of Black Knight spawning brushes.

The breeding season is weather dependent but is normally from October through to January.
You need one mature female and a minimum of two mature males.

Place the brushes just below the water level, one above the other, at the edge of the pond.

This will encourage the fish to spawn, which usually happens in the early hours of the morning, having been preceded by an evening of flurried activity in the pond.

The spawning takes several hours, during which most of the eggs will stick to the brushes.

After the spawning, it is a good idea to separate the brushes from the broodfish, otherwise the eggs will be eaten.

It is best to put the brushes in filtered water of the same temperature as before, and the fry will hatch in 3-6 days.

The small fish should be kept separate until they are large enough to be introduced to the pond.

Note: Do not use filter brushes for this purpose - These spawning brushes are made from a soft material that won't harm your fish.
