Right. Without babying them too much. I want to make sure they're healthy, but also that they're adaptable.

The water container is higher, I have my tank between two in-wall shelves(like where people would set up a TV).
I use the same time of thin air hose as I do to suck water out, but pinch it a little to slow it down even more when I clip it to the tank.

lilnaugrim explained it really well. xD

for length of time, roughly an hour? Mine does about 2 drips per second, but it can go to a slow drizzle.

Yeah I agree with bambijarvis here, anything from 1-3 drops per second would probably be just fine

Day 6

I fed the fry with MW this morning at 5, and did a 2/3 water change again at 7. I only found 1 dead fry, and that was due to fungus. I've noticed today that the fungus isn't just on the bottom, but floats around so I started today's change by suctioning the bottom for debris, then took the air hose and sucked up as much fungus and debris flying around as possible. I then took containers and took some water from the top until the water was just at the top of the heater. Then I took the turkey baster and sucked up as much fungus and debris as I could. I'm assuming the amount of fungus is due to the boiled egg yolk, so I won't be feeding them anymore of that.

The fry measure at 1/8". I'm not sure if that is normal, but they are bigger than they were newly hatched.

Still 1 dead is better than what I have been getting. I guess the unknown deaths other than the ones Kio ate, were due to them being weak, and things are starting to even out.

I hope to move to the grow out tank soon, but we'll see.

Day 7

I've come down with the flu, so I won't be doing too much today. I did feed "instant baby brine shrimp" with great results yesterday and this morning. I see more fry eating it than with MW or boiled egg yolk. If it continues to work, I think I've just made my life a bit easier. :)

I hope I'll be able to do a water change today, but it's doubtful. Fever of 102... not fun but I think I'll at least try.
