I added 2 plants to my fry tank a couple of days ago, and I noticed a few of the leaves on the moneywort were melting, I must have damaged them when I brought them home. anyway the green rotten crud was all over the bottom of the tank so I decided to do a 100% WC and take out all the gravel and clean it. I also added some stress-zyme, which is supposed to help keep the tank clean. I added my gold mystery snail, and a brown and black striped snail(not sure what it's called) that is a amazing algea eater. I got some black gravel from someone off craigslist and I mixed that in with the colorful gravel I already had. I love the way it turned out. here is a pic of the tank without the fry.
I only have 69 fry now, I assume that between the water changes and the smaller ones not getting as much food as the bigger ones some died. I have only found 3 dead when I did the water change though.
Here is what 69, 1 month old fry look like all together...
Here are more pics of the fry, they all are gold right now, but I am sure they are going to get some color because even though mom is gold, dad is red and blue.
They are in the cup getting used to the tank water again and they look like they are screaming LET ME OUT!!!!
