Fry are growing and very active. Gave MW this morning, and then tried doing some BBS in medicine dropper. The bbs seemed accepted, and many fry now swim above, as well as below the surface. Heat maintained at 82.

Cleaned bottom with TB and angled tubing attached. BBS accumulated quite a bit on bottom, even after using only a medicine dropper. Decided to wait a bit and use only worms for now.

Fed first round of Walter worms. Accepted well and fry going back to "cloud" where the worms are. Will continue both types, until they grow a bit more. Then, will introduce Walter Worms, on top of trying BBS again.

Very happy camper :)

Fry doing extremely well. Some are larger but others are seemingly doing as well. I noticed a couple with curved tails but, when I feed or do a bottom cleaning, the tail straightens out.
They are now less spooked when I put in their meals. Many are now going to the bottom, near the Marimo balls and plants so, I tend to aim the curved medicine dropper in those areas. I also go along the sides, with the microworms so it spreads. I have added BBS again (hikari Frozen, with water), along with MW, WW and BW.

No worries at this time. Still using IAL extract (just ordered tea bags of IAL to make my own), prime for water additions (after syphoning) and snails still eating what I don't get to.

Grandma is extremely proud.

Conditioning continues for 3 other males, with females. Trying new method to see if it works. Thai type but less of a hassle with plastic containers. All males blowing bubble nests under styrofoam cups but, females aren't being so excited. Will wait and see.

Day 15-May 5, 2013

I think it's day 15..I am so into these fish, I am up, day and night. :)

Now feeding only bbs, banana worms and walter worms. Siphoned bottom of tank. Noticed some fry getting even bigger, while others are smaller. Still doing well, praise God. Added more water and aquarium salt, as well as some IAL that I made from boiling and letting set in water.

Last feeding was at 1 am and was just bbs. It seems to be a good choice. More are now swimming at the bottom as well, congregating where the food settles. Temp still staying constant at 82 degrees. Beginning set up for grow out tank--cycling, hopefully starting tomorrow.

Beginning spawning tanks now for two others. Still unsure if too young but, will give it a go. So far, others have not taken but, will try it again. Also will give rosetail another shot. He did one successful and, in with a beautiful red and white female HM.

May 6, 2013 Day 16

OMGosh, they are able to be seen from the outside of the breeding tub! I counted 42 last night and I still think there are more. They are now congregating in different areas and, go right for the BBS that I shoot in with the medicine dropper. I am doing Banana and Walter worms in between feedings. They are growing so big...it's amazing!

No losses at all, so far so, we are doing well. I am watching size well and, will begin floating them in the grow out tank, next weekend. I hope to release them shortly afterwards as, it will be a planted tank.

Here are just a few that I was able to get at once:
