HOORAY!

Spotted free swimming cute babies tonight and i'm OVERJOYED! :D:D:D
Time to feed right? I've had a culture of MW going and just want to know how much and how often to feed them. Pictures would help A LOT :) thanks!

Congratulations Tenpaull

Any chance you could keep us posted with their progress?

Have you thought of names for all of them yet?
( just kidding about that part)

Haha! That would only be possible if i name them Fish1, Fish2,.. :))
However, it is a fairly small brood and I am looking at least 50 fries only.
It could be a good thing so as a first timer I can look after them more intensely:)

UPDATES!:
Day 4:
From a few little swimmers last night, they are a LOT of them to be seen swimming now. ( A heartwarming sight for me;) )
Makes me feel all my effort payed off.
Started feeding them Microworms however, i think they still prefer the infusoria and the small bits of food stuck in the filter.
I always see them hanging around the area whrein the filter and the plants are.
Wondering how much to feed(MW) can anyone help? pictures will be great.
Right now i scoop up the sides of my culture with a wooden stick and i drop the MW in the water directly.
That's all for now !

dead mommy

I have very sad news :(
The female who gave birth to my current spawn just passed away. :((
Yesterday i saw her with white stuff on her side, much like fungus but very aggressive since it looks like as if it has eaten her tissues already. and on that area of the body, "pine cone-ing" of the scales was also observed. I do not think it is Dropsy because the pine cone-ing was localized to the infected area. what could be the cause? is it just fungus? I medicated her with meth blue, and salt as soon as i diagnosed her. Please note that this happened overnight. The disease spread rather quickly.

Before i put her into the "hospital" container. I put her in a container where she was supposed to recover from the 'mating ritual' during the spawn. However, after 2-3 days she developed the so called fungus. I did water changes every other day(partial) to keep her water clean so she can recover from the fin damage.

What could be the disease? This has caused me 2 fatalities already, almost 3 but I think i was able to save the other one, (with the same medication).
Help me please guys! It looks awful and I don't want it to happen again!
