In order to produce fertilized eggs, zebrafish are placed in this breeding tank set MC1. The standard MC1 tank is filled with 3 liters of system water and the breeding insert is placed in the tank. The removable divider is placed in the breeding insert and subsequently male are placed on one side of the divider and female on the other site. Maximum 2 breeding pairs can be stocked. At the moment spawning is required, the divider is removed. The breeding insert has a sloping stainless steel mesh bottom, stimulating the natural habit of the zebrafish to spawn close to shore.
The produced fertilized eggs fall through stainless steel bottom and can be collected easily by removing the breeding insert.
The breeding tank set MC1 is based on the 3-liter MC1 tank. The set consists of:
- 1 standard polycarbonate MC1 tank (outside dim. 235 x 145 x 132 mm (LxWxH), effective volume 3 liter)
- 1 breeding insert constructed from an adapted polycarbonate MC1 tank with sloping bottom of stainless steel mesh 1 x 1 mm
- 1 standard polycarbonate lid for MC1 tanks
- 1 removable polycarbonate divider for the breeding insert
Polycarbonate is dishwasher safe but can not be autoclaved.
