I wanted to join and start showing... But I only have one baby left from my spawn. >> I don't even know how he/she managed to survive. I had thought the entire spawn had failed since I saw no movement. So I left the tank alone for a while while I was getting over being sick. Cleaned it the other day and found a lone surviving fry. Moved him/her into a 10 gal. Not risking pictures. I am only bothering him/her for feeding and water changes. I think the little one has been through enough stress for now.

Needless to say, I wouldn't have anything ready for the fall. That pair is going into the spawn tank again, but I'm just not sure. Maybe next fall I'll be more comfortable.

Thank you.
It should. The last one failed the way it did because I became so ill that getting out of bed was beyond me. While I was sick, we got some very hot weather. My spawn tank got to the triple digits before I could get to it. The fry did not take the increased temperature well at all.
The temperatures have been a little more stable now and I bought a fan just for the spawn tank in case the temp rises too high again. Plus I'm feeling much better than I was.

My MW cultures seem to have failed since my spawn crashed. I'm ordering more on the 1st so I will be putting my pair back into the spawn tank once I have my new culture. I have other foods, but I would feel better having the MW as well. All my tanks have at least some infusoria plus I have a culture of it going. Also going to get a snail to help keep the tank clean.

At the moment I'm working on a HMPK line starting with a yellow dragon and a yellow marble. I also have HM dragons, other HMPKs, a marble HMDbT, and a giant. Going to work on a line of giants and half giants. Looking for the right fish to import since I can't find what I want in the states.

I use infosuria and MW at first. I also have BBS and mosquito larvae for then are big enough for them.
I'm making sure to get my cultures from more reliable sources than the last time. I have one ordered already. Will probably look for more since I know how big of a spawn these two can produce.

Micros don't cause missing vents. Bacteria on the bottom does. Ergo, feeding micros = prolonged exposure to bacteria.
