Today is day 4 and my fry seem to be thriving. Ive started them on BBS and they seem to eat them up, I cant see them eating it or even see it in their bellies but when I look a few hours later I can only see a few BBS left in the tank.
I think they are also eating whatever the tiny white moving things on the glass. (I know OFL told me what it probably was but I can't see the name as im writing this post... ) I think this because 1. They have full looking white bellies. 2. Everyone is up and swiming all over the front panel of the tank where the most of these white things are.
Those that are weak and resting alot seem to still be resting and unmoving maybe at all. I think about 50-100 strong healthy fry remain swiming happy all around.
Next time I wont make such a large batch of BBS because if I am to only feed within the first 48 hours (or is it 24) then I will have to waste a lot of BBS.
Had to figure out how to strain the BBS without a shrimp net. I found a piece of my lace for my crafts and its got a thick strip of very fine mesh and I stuck that inside my regular fish net and it worked!
Fins are developing nicely, I can make out the first of the pectoral fins . Also I see many of the caudal fins are straight to the bottom and then round. Like a little paddle. Its so cute. I admit I spend WAY to much time staring at them lol...
Here is a pic I took in the dark, you can see their little eyes glowing lol.
