Good idea. ;) I closes the towel and left him to his fatherly duties. (Although I still peek!)

Had to save a tiny bird from the clutches of my cats...Poor thing! Its fine though, resting in a critter keeper till I know its out of shock and I can release it.

I tell ya... the excitment around here!

Exclamation Help, too many babies?

Hmm...

He can't keep up, there is litterally babies everywhere! They are trying to stay up in the nest but a ton are just all over the floor of the tank.

Can they live? There is nothing I can do for him at this point, but im hoping the ones on the floor wont die.

:(

The fry should be fine. :) They'll zip back up to the top and then float back down.

Yay! Good luck with your fry!! My fry hatched three weeks ago, it's so cool to watch them get bigger and start too look like more than eyeballs with tails :)

Congrats!

Playing the waiting game

Still waiting for these little guys to start swiming right. It looks like they dont have fins just tails, or maybe I just cant see them.

Hopefully they start swiming Horizontal soon!

Fry pics :-P Also question!

Here are the fry, well some... and they are not really super clear due to still being very tiny.

It looks like their yolksac is almost fully gone and most are free swiming now but still some lazy bums not there yet. Some stay on the bottom for awhile before trying to swim.

I can see on most of them that they now have itty bitty little fins.

Question.

Now that most are free swiming, but some arnt... do I take out dad? I saw a pic on here awhile ago with a daddy with all his olderish fry behind him.

BG (Bubblegum) isnt eating them or anything other then taking care of them and encouraging swiming. Should I let him stay or take him out now?

Thanks!
