    Default My newest delightful design, a different breeding "cone"

    I have been thinking about a hanging "cone" for some time now. It is based on the old breeding slates some used to use long ago, some still do use them for discus and angelfish. My design can hang up, or stand up next to the glass on a BB or sand tank bottom and comes with 50 lb test fish line and a strong suction cup (this is attached to the tank outside glass). The "cone" is flat except for a good sized lip on the bottom edge to catch falling eggs or fry. It is 10" top to bottom. I will make them in terra cotta or white or swirled clay or glazed.

    They will be $9 each and come with fish line and a suction cup, the glazed will be $12
    I will include a piece of plastic gutter guard as an egg protector, for free if requested.
    Here are pictures of my new design, please let me know what you think of them. I am looking for a good name to call them other than "cone".

    To get the ball rolling, I will send a free pottery gift to the first person who posts a pic here of their fish spawning on one of these new "cones" or even just a pic with eggs on the "cone".

    Pics here of my 125 gal discus tank and some of them are already checking it out, after only a few minutes in their tank. The pair I have are pecking on it already.

    Very nice Barb, I love the Glazed ones of course. Do you have these in stock already or are you going to be making them soon?

    Thanks Pat!
    Kraig, I just made 4 of these as demos. But I will make as many as people want to order. And I can do them in all the glazes I have for the regular cones I make. These new "cones" are 1/4" thick, sturdy and heavy enough not to break unless they are dropped on a very hard surface.

    Talking Re: My newest delightful design, a different breeding "cone"

    I just had my pair of Super Checkerboard Pigeons spawn on the new breeding flat again. Funny side note: I received the contest prize on the same day! THANK YOU!!! It was the night of the full moon; so, I had three other pairs laying eggs at the same time on the regular cones too! Here are some pics of the new flat cone though. I will have to get a better camera one of these days... Sorry again for the poor quality.



    Thanks again Barb! For the contest prize and the great new design! It's the only thing these two will spawn on. I should have wrigglers tomorrow

    Nick

    P.S. Everyone should give these a try! They really are outstanding quality and Barb's customer service is top notch!
