So just a small update, the fry are doing fantastic!They have cute little round bellies and some are getting big enough to spot with no problems now! We still have one that is itty bitty like a newly hatched fry. So I'm keeping a close eye on that one. If it continues that way I will move the little one into a different tank or float it in a big cup so he has a chance to catch up.
So because I am to lazy to actually measure how big of a water change I am doing.. I took a picture of the markers I have on the tank showing how much lol.
Then a picture of part of the tank while I filled the floating cups with new water.
I know the cups take a long time.. but I want to make sure the water temp is the same when I actually add it into the tank. So I have about 5 floating cups in there at one time and I use my fry safe siphon to slowly add the water into the cups without overflowing into the tank.
Cute thing happened today! So I was harvesting all the worms today and starting new cultures.. and by mistake added the one with waaaaay to many worms for my fry.. so long story short I over fed. To fix the problem I was doing small water changes all day long and as I did there was a single fry that would charge at the turkey baster every time he saw it! It was like he was saying "stop taking meh food!!!"
So that was the cute story of the day :)
