Default breeding white clouds?

Hi
I was looking after some tropicals for a sick friend, and it doesnt look
like he wants them back, well there are four white cloud mountain minnows
amongst them, and I read that they would breed outside in summer (cant put
them out in winter, in England), so I put them in an old bath with some
floating plants and a little pond rush. There is no filter, but there are
only four, and I keep changing some of the water. Do you think I might have
some success? And if so, will I need to put something in to feed the
youngsters? I dont really want to spend much on them, as I have a pond and
now two tropical tanks to look after as well.
love Barbara

I tossed some very tiny rosie's in my pond. In just a few months they have
grown to the size of my little finger. I think your minnows, if similar will
do great.

Yes. I used to work for an aquarist in Chelmsford (quite near London) and we
had a pond full of wcmm's outside in a pond from spring until late autumn.

We used to temperature-acclimatise them in batches when transferring them in
each direction, and (with hindsight) *may* have missed one or two that
didn't want to be caught to come in for the winter!

They were very lively and a change from the usual pond species.

We adapt the temperature of the past, they transfer them in batches each direction, and (later) may have missed one or two not want to be caught coming winter.
