Black Knight Spawning Brushes come as a pack of 2 with each brush measuring 1.5m by 140mm diameter.
Spawning Brushes provide an ideal solution when breeding fish do not have natural plant life to spawn on.
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 April to July. 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 brood fish, 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.
These spawning brushes are made from a soft material that will not harm your fish, DO NOT USE filter brushes for this purpose.
