Woo babies! Provide them with some cover, or the mommas will eat them.

There is a ton of java moss, duckweed & frogbit, and anarchis floating around in there. I separated the adults too, put the one that looks more pregnant but was trying to eat babies in a separate breeders box and gonna let the one that actually looks like she's laboring finish out.

What do you guys think I should do::: keep the babies in the net and move the adults to a 2.5 or move the babies over and leave the adults in the net? The nets in a 26 gallon there's more airation in the 26 than the 2.5...

I'd leave the babies in the net. With the water volume/temp/stability of your larger tank, they'll grow nicely.

Thanks for the advice! I'll move both of the adults into the other tank till I get fry from the other, then maybe look at how they work in the sorority tank. My girls are all pretty chill, so that seems like the best idea till I can get another tank in and cycled.

I have a few more questions

What should I feed the babies? How soon? And, How often?

On hand I have:: microworms, banana worms, brine shrimp eggs i can hatch, and hikari first bites.

Which ones would you recommend? Preferably not the brine shrimp because they are a P.I.T.A.

we feed ours the same flakes that we feed our adults, just crushed. They're not too horribly picky. Out of the list, I'd say staple of hikari, treats of the others you have on hand.

How soon and how often should I start feeding them?

Sorry for all the questions, I've never actually had to deal with any type of livebearer babies

I feed from the 2nd day, and I feed 1x a day, I had significant growth in my batch, while my fiance was feeding 2x a day, and his were half the size lol

I've read that you're actually supposed to feed 2x a day though
