Default Mating question

Would it make any difference to a trio of guppies if they were put together to mate in a 5 gal plastic tupperware versus a 5 gal glass tank? Would they be too scared.

they wouldn't care if they were in the tank of the toilet ; they would still mate...
i breed odessa barbs in a storage tote...

if we ignore nature;maybe it will go away

10 gallon..nothing but air

10 gallon...just more air

10 gallon...stale air

just don't ask about the rest

Target has some 8 gallon bins that I've taken on trips to keep fish in the room in (i put abot 5 gallons in them). What matters is heat and filter and that is for keeping them alive, not for mating.

I use plastic bins more than I use glass tanks. Works fine.
