Does anyone know anything about spawning mops?
I was reading about them and was wondering if you could use them for more than just Goldfish?

oh yeah.they work for many sticky egg layers.Alot of rainbow fishes are best bred using spawning mops.I personaly like using java moss for the eggs but sometimes you dont have that option.I remember Dale talking about using fake christmas tree wreaths as mops.

I was thinking of trying them inside a tank, just to see if guppy fry or mollies will hide there as well.

are you going to make your own mops or are you going to buy some?I have been in the process of using a cheap dollar store plastic lufa sponge for a similar project.

I was going to get some Acrylic Yarn and make my own, they seem really easy to make. I just need some craft corks so i can make it float.
