Well I haven't checked on the nest since lastnight but it has now been about 48 hours since they were put in the nest, so herein about 6 hours when I get off work hopefullyi will be going home to some hatched fry!!!
UPDATE!!!!!! Just got home from work to this! holy cow I know this is my first spawn in all but this seems like a ton of fry! let me know what you think for a number guess and if you think its a lot! all I know is dad is crazy busy and still cant get all up to the nest.
My fry are doing well! should start free swimming in the next day or to but I have one problem.... my infusoria culture is still cloudy so I don't think I should feed the fry that once starting to free swim... so my choices are either use egg yolk, brine shrimp or first bites.... I also put in a hornwort plant lastnight but I don't think that will feed the fry any would it? opinions would be great!
fry are doin good and I can tell dad is extremely tired! should be able to take him out tomorrow! some have lost yolk sacks but aren't swimming yet:/ heres a video for everyone! enjoy! http://youtu.be/2_fRaBuj1wc
