Aw, so cute! I didn't start fozen foods till 2 months, but my first spawn has always been on the smaller side. I'm trying to 'power grow' this new spawn, feeding pretty much 4-6 x a day (I have 4 snails scavenging the tank)

I have a sponge filter going from the beginning. That way it is already cycled. I have it set to about a bubble a second in the beginning, from spawning. Then about once a week I increase the bubbles.

I don't fill my spawning tanks, so I introduce a gallon of water a day on a drip, after the first week. By the time they are 2 weeks, I start carefully doing water changes.

The first spawn, I used airline, rigid and flexible, and I sucked up many a fry. This time I'm putting pantyhose or something and just going to change water daily and not worry about all the crap on the bottom until they are much bigger. When it gets really dirty I'll take my little medicine dropper and remove some. Tedious, but I don't want to have to constantly worry about sucking up the babies.

yeah Iv only been using frozen baby brine shrimp i mainly feed microworms.

I put a sponge filter in there at 2 weeks, and my tank is probably 3/4 full. I havent seen them come up for air just yet...

the bubbles are Id say not enough to move the surface but in the area the sponge filter is the water surface does move. Im sure its okay though they dont look like it effects them at all!

I have one apple snail in there and never realized how much they POOP! holy lol. I do 50% water changes everyday, most of the time i accidently suck up fry but today i didnt :D

what did you feed your fry?

Do you find that they eat the frozen bbs without trouble? I always read that you shouldn't feed frozen because they don't move and stimulate the natural hunting instincts of the fry.

But your babies look great! And feeding frozen would be soooo much easier then hatching and feeding live!
