Well, all the fry are now free swimming except for about 3. A few were starting to swim around at about 1, but by the time I discovered them my male was chowing down on them. I was kind of surprised since he hadn't eaten any until then, but I removed him. I'm going to feed them VE tonight and MW in the morning.

The fry are doing great. They will be a week old on Friday :) So far, none have died that I know of. I counted at least 50 in one of the 'hot spots' and about 20 more in other parts of the tank. For the first two feedings I fed VE and every feeding since then I have fed hard boiled egg yolk twice a day. They gobble up the egg yolk much faster than the VE and I read it is much more nutritious too. It seems like every morning when I wake up they are bigger than they were the night before. I am going to do my first water change today since they are finally big enough for me to see if I were to suck any up. So far so good :) I will try to post some pics this weekend.

congrats to your successful spawn. since they are a week old, u only have to be extra caring for a week or two, cause after passing the 2-3week mark, most of the fry will survive to hansome adults!! keep us updated

The fry are a week old today :) The first water change went good and didn't appear to kill off any fry. I am only going to do water changes every 2-3 days until they are 2 weeks old, then I'll start doing daily water changes. I am still feeding hard boiled egg yolk, but I am going to start hatching BBS today. I'll probably start feeding it to them on Sunday. I also took some pics.

3 days old


1 week old


Sorry about the bad pics. They have started swimming a lot more instead of just sitting at the surface, so it's hard to get good pics.

The fry are about a week and a half. I have continued feeding egg yolk and also started feeding BBS. They are still growing very quickly and I have only had one fry die so far. I have already done about 4 water changes and will start dailys when the fry hit 2 weeks. Sorry about the bad pictures before. I found the macro settings on my camera so I took some better ones.

This may be a silly question, but does anyone know why I can only see some pictures and others I only get the little white box with the red X in it? I am guessing something is not set correctly.
