I always feed as soon as they're free swimming. I used Faith's info (www.bettatalk.com) when I started and that has stuck with me since then.

The fry are 7 days old today and doing well. I'm extremely happy to see that Tallahassee is doing a good job as a daddy. I don't think he's eating any of the fry.

Starting today I'll be doing small water changes daily, just enough to suck the detritus off the bottom. Then at 2 weeks I'll begin doing large daily water changes.

The fry will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. They're not growing as well as I'd like but that is my fault because I've been lax on water changes this past week what with finals and all. Now that the semester is over hopefully they'll begin to grow at a faster rate.

Right now they're being fed live VE but starting tomorrow or sunday I'm going to begin incorporating frozen BBS just like I did with the last spawn. I'm also going to start doing 50-75% daily water changes starting tomorrow.

Heheh.. if you've read my fall spawn thread you know that I'm not stingy with the pictures

Beat.. I'm estimating them at between 20-50 right now. I'm basing that off the fact that I was able to count at least 17. I'm going to do a 100% water change tomorrow and try to get a full count. I'm still planning on doing another spawn and mixing the fry once the younger ones are big enough that the older ones won't eat them. I'll probably spawn the pair again next Wednesday or Thursday, maybe even as early as Tuesday.

20-50 is a good number. :)
Looking forward to updates with your next spawn.
