I got food ready. might put a bit in tonight and see if it gets eaten, then do a water change tomorrow morning :) I still have no idea how many fry there are!

thanks guys!

so i have a question. the fry are now free swimming, and i have microworm to feed them. question is, how can i be sure they will get to eat the microworm? surely in such a big space it is unlikely they will find them, also with the plants in there too?

Hi Effy,
to get more chances of the fry finding the MWorms, you may lower the water level, and feed more Mworms to them, but be careful not too overfeed as uneaten worms will cloud the water and its real hard to do a water change without 'sucking' up the tiny fry.

Thats why I only use BBS and I don't bother with other cultures. It lets me see them so I don't suck them up. I realy only do a few actual siphonings during the first month. The rest of the time I put an airstone at the end and let it drain water. It works a lot better.

bbs is a better choice in nutrition, but for novice breeders you need to get only the newly hatched bbs to feed the 1st day fry, if you fail to estimate the hatching and leave the bbs for too long say another day the bbs will lose its nutritional value and may grow a bit large to fit into the tiny mouths of the tiny fries. anyway breeding is hard at first and you have to adjust all variables to suit your own environment and style. thats where most breeders have their own experiences.anyway the more spawns you breed, the easier it will become, just don't give up trying.

Beautiful fish! I have eggs too... but the daddy is an egg eater and I took him out last night before I went to bed. I hope they'll hatch without him. I have had him eat two batches..and one batch had fungus. This time I have added pimafix.. 'sigh'... I guess it is trial and error... Mostly errors on my part so far.

Methyline blue helps to prevent the eggs from fungusing.
