I use the Marina Holding and Breeding Box that hangs on the outside of the aquarium, it has a tube that runs into the aquarium that you attach an airline to and it drips water into the Breeding Box and it overflows at the other end so you are constantly pumping tank water in and out of the box. I put my tiny babies in the box and feed them well until they grow bigger and then I transfer them to a twenty gallon tall bare bottom tank with a sponge filter and floating plants to continue growing until I can take them to the TCA auction or to the swap at Texas Aquatics. I get the large box that holds a half gallon. I have the longfin albino and they breed at an incredible rate.
