Young fish need lots of water changes if you ever want to see any growth. Most breeders do at least a 50% w/c every day, but in a 55g grow out that isn't necessary... 3x a week, like ILB said, would be better.

Oh yes...lots and lots and lots of water changes if you don't want them to grow super slow. I just started doing 50% daily changes (the last three weeks) and there really is a difference.

How often were you planning to do water changes?

ohhhh, for the fry! Every day for the fry... the big tank would be for my cichlid! I wouldnt want to breed with that big of a tank. I can get a 20 gallon for like 15 bucks ...this hobby is way too addicting.

Update: This morning I finished hatching my first batch off BBS which went well.
I go outside to feed the three fry that I saw and I ended up seeing 30-40 fry today! :) I was sooo happy ! anyway, I dripped some more water into the tank and fed them a couple drops of BBS ... NOW the fun begins!

Yay! How exciting! I'm glad you had more fry survive! Although 3 sounds like a manageable number haha. I can't wait to attempt to spawn my fish this week!
