Tricky to breed from what I hear. Each coastal river has a different population of Blue Eyes and some are more or less hardy than others. The real experts know the difference. What I have found out is that they must have moving water at all times and are not particularly cold hardy.
We have Pacific Blue Eyes in our pond, and they do breed there with no intervention from us. Our pond does not have have a water feature, so there is no resemblance of running water. They survive all year round in our outdoor unheated pond.
That's great news Elizabeth! I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens :-)
Certainly made me very optimistic about a breeding success, thanks! Maybe I can play some romantic music to help things along hehehe...
