about a month now. i have an outbreak of ich in the tank above this. im watching the fry carefully. hoping ich wont reach this tank. i have been trying to add some decaps with the brine shrimp feeding. dont know if its working yet.

on another note i found out they will be opening a petsmart in a town 20 miles from me. that will be the only petsmart on the island. hoping they will have nice bettas... hmm that would be bad and good. =)

excuse the cat hair in the first pic... haha

I hope your ich infected tank will be okay :/

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

it is a month and 2 weeks. they seem to be on the small side but steadily growing. they are finally starting to eat decaps so hopefully i can stop hatching brine shrimp in about a week.

i will probably separate the spawn into 3 tanks in the next week or so. that should help with the growth. (10 gal, 15 gal and a 15 gal tub)

i had trouble with this spawn. 3 things.
1. i was over feeding bbs. led to some fish with sbd. culled those. approx 30.
2. water was too cold. 72F at night. 76F day. slow growth. got heaters. set 80F.
3. i believe the decap bs was going bad. more slow growth and some fish die. switched them to hikari first bites. then hikari guppy pellets. and now hikari micro pellets.

problems solved. fish growing. about 70 left.

will update pics when i have time.
