Nice job. Raising the fry is the hard part. Good luck. Looks like my spawn is small too like 20-30 I think.

How are you dripping the water into the tank?

Lets hope we both get nice and healthy fry =)!

I'm using a 5 gallon bucket, air line tube and one of those air pump control valve.
I start suction so water is being sucked out of the bucket thru the air line tube, and i stick one of those control value at the exit end to control the flow.

My frys are 1 week old! =D So i have been feeding them banana worms and microworms 3 times a day. I drip about 5 gallons of water out of the tank during the day (over 12 hr period) and drip 5 gallons of water back into the tank (over night)

I am going to start feeding them baby brine shrimp along with the worms starting monday. I am going to hatch a batch tonight =)

My frys are so big now! =D! well, they are still eyes and tails but i can see them now! I have been alternating microworms and banana worms. I have also fed them the first batch of bbs. I will probably start feeding them microworms in the morning, banana worms in the evening, and bbs before bed.

Question here is. Since they can still eat just worms. Can I just hatch one batch at a time? And just either keep the bbs in the hatchary or put them in the fridge? and start another batch while i am still feeding the left overs?

Of course this is not the plan forever. I will start hatching two batch at a time, when the frys mostly live on bbs.

Just for the time being, i wonder if i can do that to save some bbs eggs, lol =).

My babies has made it to two weeks!! They about rice size now =) and eating like champs!! I always read that its not rare to find dead babies, interestingly i haven't found a single dead baby!

I also attempted to count them today.... I saw a bunch of them hanging out at the bottom of the tank and tried to count them. I counted over 70! O.o and that's only those hanging out at the bottom!

That's cool you don't have any die off. I find maybe 1 or 2 dead every few days the fry I find dead look small and weak. I rather have the weak ones die off now then have to cull. I have over 100fry I lost count at 180. So I don't mind losing a few.

Good job getting to the 2 week mark. My fry are 11 days old today.
