found 2 different types of food today. i wasnt satisfied with petsmart's choices so i bought the only tropical food that wasnt flakes and then decided to go to petco. thankfully they had my favorite tropical fish food (the tetracolor granules) and my fish love them! but now comes the waiting game of hoping for babies! im so impatient and i just sit there staring at the tank hoping that i can telepathically tell her to have them.

well i only saw her have one, but so far ive got 12. basically she was really frantic the night before if i turned any lights on, but when i would come in to check on her after having the lights off, she would be laying in a cave at the bottom of the tank. and i read somewhere that platies have their babies in the morning around sunrise so it made since when i woke up at 8 and realized we had babies in the tank. but basically she was just frantically swimming back and forth and then she would go hide in this corner(that i planted heavily so the babies would have a chance) and she would just stop for a second and pop one out and then keep swimming. and i tried to put her in the breeder net but i dont think she actually had any in there, i just had to catch the little free swimmers in the tank.

Yay Ours had its babies about a week ago and basically the tank is so big and planted we did not see them until I was doing a water change opps and due to the fact the tank is full of various fish a bunch of the poor little guys got eaten we managed to move about 7 over to our red cherry shrimp tank to grow up and be safe, but unfortunately the daddy mickey died today, he had gotten sick a few weeks ago bounced back and died within a few hours today after looking fine, makes me a bit sad, but I am hoping there is a replacement in the shrimp tank

Yeah we did not think the whole liver bearer thing through with some of the fish we have but we lucked out all of the mollys are girls, and red cherry shrimp won't mess with fry so it only made sense to move them over, luckily thos 2 tanks are cleaned and water changed the same days so it was not a shock to them and the temp was within .2 degrees
