Babies are almost a month old....

They are getting big. :) 3 are a lot bigger than the others and I've noticed they will go after the tiny ones and sometimes even eat them. :( Is this common? I'm guessing it is. I am wondering when to start jarring them? About to look into small jars and some other stuff.

maybe just jar the larger and/or aggressive ones, until the rest grow more.

Not sure when they can begin eating reg food. They are still on BBS right now. I am trying little fry food power now and then.

You'll get more answers in the breeding section if you ask there :)

Its natural for the larger fry to eat the *runts*, you can let nature take its course or remove the big ones into their own tank until the others can catch up. The larger fry release more of the growth stunting hormone to keep the smaller ones small and then they can eat them. The thought freaked me out while breeding when i heard about it so i separated them before they could actually eat on each other D;

RIP to my little Coraline.
