Creat: That's wonderful that you got them to stock less...better than nothing!
I can't tell if it's a male or female yet...so I'm just going to call it a her
.but even today there has been a noticable color difference! I can only look down on her, as the breeder net is hard to see through, but I can see some color.
The baby just seems to be happily swimming about (which is a good sign...my last one didn't swim at all and ended up dying)...I fed her some bloodworms a few times today, just one or two at a time...I tried making them smaller, but I accidentally let a big one slip through the medicine tube...and she ate it! She might have swam around for 5 minutes with it sticking through her mouth, but she eventually got it down...she is just gobbling up the bloodworms like crazy! I will feed her brine shrimp maybe tomorrow and try to pick up some suitable food for her (unless bloodworms/brine shrimp are suitable until she is old enough for pellets?)
Like I said, my stocking in my ten gallon is very low...long story as to why it's so empty...1 half grown balloon molly, 3 amano shrimp, and 3 pygmy cories (plus an overload of snails, and 7 assassin snails to help take care of them!) It is pretty well planted, as you can kind of see from the pictures...plus loads of floating plants that you can't see in the pictures. And it is pretty heavily filtered (the filter is meant for a thirty gallon I think). With that information, could you maybe suggest a good cleaning schedule while I have the baby in here?
Thank you for your help! Any more suggestions would be wonderful! Any way I can make her home more comfortable? Or is it good the way it is with just some floating plants and know gravel in it (to make it easy to clean out extra food)..?
Thank you all! I will keep you updated!
Edit: I posted and then saw 3 more comments! I am pretty sure that what I have in there can handle 82 degrees...any opinions on that before I raise it? I don't think she has any ammonia burns, but then again it is hard to see through this net...
I really appreciate all of your comments!
