Ok so the fry that were born Saturday,(Let's call this batch, batch #2 :P)are now free swimming. I took daddy out, and added some VE to the tank. A lot of water evaporated during the time the pair was in there and spawning, so right now there's just enough water to cover the heater. Because of this, I'm currently floating plastic jars filled about halfway with water in the tank. I will add the water tomorrow. I won't start actually filling up the tank until they are 1 week old. At 1 week old I'll start feeding live BBS, and after the 3rd week, try dry and frozen foods.

Now,the the other 4 fry from batch #1 will be 3 weeks old tomorrow.They are getting water changes every single day, and they are currently feeding on live BBS.I'm going to switch them to dry/frozen foods after week 4. You could now easily see the caudal, anal, and a bit of the dorsal fin on the biggest fry. The others are coming in at there own pace. Now I'm going to be switching the fry from the 2nd batch over to the growout where the other fry are currently in, when they are around 2-4 weeks old. However , if that big fry keeps growing like he is, I'll probably jar him when the other fry move in. Then I could try to do another spawn. :)

Watch one of these "then I can do one more spawn" things is gonna get you like 500 fish :P I reccomend conditioning in a divided tank with frozen foods and frequent cleanings.

Lol Well it's just I really want to show next spring, so I'm going to need a few good spawns . If that male copper I recently bought gets here safely, I'll be doing my next spawn with him, and my steel MG HMDT.

Well today after a water change on the growout tank, I noticed there is only one fry left.(The big one) :(. I might just jar him for easier WCs and feeding.

On another note, batch #2 is doing great! Swimming around and happpily eating VE.
