The exact same thing happened to me! I thought I only had three fry only to discover a day later that I have around 70 (that I could see)...Good luck with everything man!

Elsewhere- Lol well go ahead if you want, but I'm just warning you. Oh and by the way a lot of it is complaining about sick and dead/dying fish. You must be in eastern Canada if you already can't sleep, right?

Croz711- Yea for a few hours I thought I had four, then I kept finding more and more... Lol. We'll see how many I end up with. They should hatch tonight, some have already started.

Fry need small amounts of food often. Vinegar eels are ideal for the youngest ones but banana worms and bbs should work too. Usually they just live on the natural infusoria in the tank for the first day.

Most people start water changes at two weeks but as long as you are very careful you can start them after they start free swimming, or wait a bit longer. You just have to be super careful. Fry are delicate.

Nah that isn't a problem. They'll be fine, just don't add loads and loads... Tiny fish eat tiny amounts.

The dt pooped today and it was white, so yea, he was definitely an egg eater.

Good news is that the eggs are already starting to hatch .

Awesome news, Matt! And yes, from good ol' Ontario. My cousin lives in your province, though :)

See it? This baby is from the HMDT/HMPK spawn. They hatched, even though dad came out and didn't help them along.
