My fry are now 11 days old. I have very few die off. Yester none the day before 2 re dead.

On sep 10th I added a sponge filter that I had seeded in a mature tank. Before adding that I had nothing but a heater in the tank. My fry all stayed near the surface due to lack of o2 now they are all other the place and it makes it hard to do a wc.

I suck up lots of babies but I catch them all in the bucket and put them back. No problem just takes extra time to catch them all.
We suck up the occasional baby & put them back too LOL. Our babys are 9 days old. Started BBS & setting up the VE for harvest the right way this time.

I'm attempting to teach my fry to eat decapsulated brine shrimp by harvesting my bbs early =<.. I decapsulate my bbs eggs, then hatch them, when they are about 50% hatched, i harvest. So i am feeding half bbs and half decapsulated brine shrimp... I am hoping they are eating them =<...

That sounds like a good idea. My fry at 12 days now and eat like pigs I never find left over food anymore but partly due to the sponge filter I think .

I got some fry photos will post later they are growing fast.

I've never had fry turn down decaps, I don't offer live bbs first though so that may be why.

Looking forward to pictures.^^

My fry are 13 days old and doing well growing fast and I have not lost any in days. They almost look like fish now. They are great eaters I don't find any left overs.





Fry before eating bbs.


You can see them swimming around.

2weeks woohoo I made it. They are eating so much more then ever now. Starting to show good color on some. before to get photos I was using a marco glass filter. Now I don't need it because they are so much bigger. I have not lost many at all maybe 10 since they became free swimming.
