I think you begin feeding as soon as they are free swimming. I'm not sure about the water changes.Yes, you can remove the male.

So I have a few free-swimmers, some are afraid to leave the nest but I'm seeing a lot of movement!

I started feeding boiled egg yolk (got this idea from Betty Splendens) and infusoria. The free swimmers are eating!

They seem to love hanging around their java ferns. I plan to remove Frances soon, once the babies can get around all on their own. :)

I'm heading to Best Buy on Thursday to get a new cable for my camera, so expect photos then :)

Another update:

Now that all the fry are free swimming, I've been able to get a rough count of how many there are.

I have at least 46 fry surviving (out of three counts, this was my lowest count). They are still quite small so I am waiting on water changes, but they are growing very quickly so I will be able to start those soon hopefully.

I am very anxious to post photos here for you all to see, but I work for tips only so it's hard to say when I will be able to purchase a USB cord for my camera. Wednesdays are usually $250+ nights though, so wish me luck!
