They are in a 10 tank right now I have a 29 gallon tank I was going to switch them into when they got a littler larger as Im worried about shock and also getting them from point a to point b. I was doing 25% water changes with with bottom clean up after every meal and add in the amount of water I took out cleaning up waste. I started to do 50% water changes last week once I realized how much bigger they should be. Ill make a vid tomorrow to show you what they look like. but to give you an idea they are at the four week mark by this chart but like I said before it seems so small compared to others spawn logs....http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/bettagrowth.html

I transferred mine into a 35 gallon the day after free swimming. Also I do 15 gallon water change daily. And the spawn was only about 33 fish.

How did you safely transfer so many fish especially when they were so small? I guees I could try and transfer them over to the 29 gallon Im justed worried about them dying.

I bred them inside of a small container that had a hole in it already inside if the 35 gallon... So the water parameters and temp were the same. So I just dumped the fry on day 4 with no problems. I used the drip method placing one gallon in daily until the water was reaching the top. It ended up being a little before they were 2 weeks old when it was full...

So I may MAY have seen two dbt fry they definatly had a split in the middle of their tails but it could be from siblings biting or something as well. Not sure. I thought I also would mention that while these guys will not be ready for awhile I will be giving them away for free +shipping U.S.A only.

Oh also they are starting to show some color well if you call a grey a color anyway lol I tried to take pictures but it wont show. Also dorsals are looking awesome most of them are almost as long as their anal fin though I dont know how that will translate once they mature.

I know a lot of people change their water WAY more than is needed, this in turn puts fish in a never ending state of shock..if you have a good biologic filter
{Sponge type} for fry, a simple 75% every 2 weeks will suffice with frequent siphoning of course, but do what works for you I say.
