Thanks for all the replies guys, sounds like that pantyhose gravel vac is a better idea than cupping lol will do that, thanks sena, looks like he's picked a few up now so I'm a lot happier, they're starting to try to swim lol its kind of amusing watching them zip rorund then randomly fall :D

Minor heart attack this morning when I looked into the baby tank and thought Boris had eaten his babies since none were in the nest-turns out daddy was having a nice little nap while the babies were feasting on microworms-I honestly thought I'd lost them all!!!

Thanks guys, today has been a day of mixed emotions-I'm so happy all my babies are doing so well, but sadly I also had to put my red tailed shark boy to sleep :( He lived in a tank on his own with a few corycats, they all got along so well but yesterday when I went to check on him he was struggling to breathe and was covered in some disease :( its strange because a few hours before I had checked on them all and he seemed like normal, but I put a treatment in to give him a chance of survival, woke up this morning and his swimbladder was gone, I had him for 5 years since I first got my tank so letting go was extremely hard for me :( I decided I'm going to name one of my babies after him though!!!Circle of life!!! R.I.P my beautiful boy shadow

I wouldn't cup the fry.. too much of a shock to them.. as mentioned before, airline tubing or a turkey baster is your best bet.. make sure any new water is the exact same temp as the water in your tank.. which reminds me, I would really really suggest placing your heater into the water.. it's a submersible one and it being half out like that will cause it to explode... highly recommend submersing it asap.

Sorry for your loss...

Good luck!

Well this update has been a long time coming, 8 weeks old tomorrow, im run off my feet with them all, last count was 15 babies, 10 doubletail and 5 singletail. I cant believe my luck, I didnt expect any dt in this spawn and I have more dt thn st, all of them I am happy to say are now developing extending rays on their fins which I am guessing is their dad's ct genes coming out in them. One thing I have noticed is they havent grown at a very good rate, where some peoples babies are full sized at 12 weeks I think mine are looking at 16weeks to be full size which is one thing im a little dissapointed with but apart from that I havent had to cull any as most deformed babies died within the first week others I had to watch over and they were released into the fry tank when they were strong enough. Still working out gender of most, one is very clearly a boy, he is the biggest single tail and since jarring has gained a gorgeous blue colour!

Can you post pics of the babies? It sounds like they're doing well.
