Subscribed so I can read more about your adventures with your fish! I'm glad you rescued the Platy and her fry!

Thank you =) Yeah, I saw her being bullied the most, and i knew that if I left her there, her fry would be eaten immediately.

The 8 fry are doing really well. They have doubled in size and are now starting to show colors. I hope a few are mickey mouse like their mom.

Platy fry are doing really well. I have more on the way. I expect another three batches in the next month or so, as I got two more females and another male. I want to introduce the panda pattern to the line and see what happens. The females I have right now are all pre-hit, so I won't be getting the outcome I calculate, but at least I might get some interesting colors to add.
In a less than a month, my first batch should be ready for sale. They have doubled in size within two weeks, and I am so excited.

So, with another three batches, I could have up to how many new fry to care for? I might do natural selection, but if I am going to do a small breeding project, I don't know if that'll work.

Yeah. Try about 40 babies, lol.

I know have:
1 Goldfish (might be getting a friend for him, yipeee)
1 Dojo Loach (looking for 2 more)
12 Platys
9 Bettas
10 Snails

Plants I am trying to get:
Bacopa
Anacharis
Cyperus Helferi
Red Ludwigia
Hygro
Rotala
Moneywort
Brazilian Pennywort

So, I thought my sorority was working out, but they don't look right. They are always staying in the same spot swimming as if they were a school of fish.
Snowbird bit my arm HARD when I was doing water changes. It actually hurt.

2/24/14: I moved the platy fry into a breeders net in the 10G so they get some better filtration. After they grow up, I'm not really going to raise anymore. Natural selection is going to be in my tank, lol.

So, now my first batch of fry are over a month old. And guess what their present was? MORE SIBLINGS! My new MM platy gave birth today to healthy babies. Hopefully I get some males in this batch, but I am letting them survive on their own.

My betta collection/hobby is going on hiatus, and I am now just going to keep my two 10g tanks. I have two male bettas for adoption, so please check out my FS thread.
