I got a tiny colorless baby from petco last year. Put him in an unheated 1.75 gallon critter keeper and feed him only crushed pellets (obviously not ideal, but I knew nothing about fry). He is over a year old now, huge and healthy. I dont know why people are telling everyone they are so hard to raise. I have three more now ( in heated tanks this time) and the are all healthy, active ang growing. One has a swim bladder issue, but I knew that when I got him. Please dont be afraid to get them if you want. Must just die in those horrible cups.
