It would usually be 3-4 weeks where you know for sure (depending on the growth of the fry)

I really like the parents. they are really pretty. The babies are adorable little things right now, can't wait to see them as they get older :)

By brown algae - do you mean the brown layer forming on the tank floor and walls? You can scrape and siphon them out. I think they're harmless and will eventually become green algae. Most of my small tanks have/had them.

ty for the kind comments.

yes the algae started on the walls then moved to the floor. i wipe it with a paper towel and siphon it every couple of days. it gets on the java moss which i wash out periodically as well.

the more the fry grow... the more i am debating on how to grow them out. im guessing aboit 100 fry. i might try a 2 - 15 gal tubs and a npt 20L. only problem is that the npt will be my first npt that i will start on tuesday. i hope it will be established enough.

i would avoid an npt as a grow out as you're not supposed to siphon an NPT and growouts need constant siphoning.

I always have to fight algae in my spawn tank :(

a little over 3 weeks. still struggling with the brown algae problem. its not so bad because at least it doesnt seem to affect the frys health. id like to leave it but then i wouldnt be able to see the fish at all if i let it go for a few weeks.

i guess ill have to go with a second tub then since the npt grow out might be difficult. just got to find another table to put the on so i can siphon.

i really need to get a better camera. my phone just isnt good enough. thinking about a canon t3i. anyone got any suggestions on cameras?

Canon T3i definitely. the older versions are not bad either. I actually have a Canon PowerShot SX240 HS
