The fry are free swimming now. I removed the male. He was being a good daddy but I didn't want to risk him snacking on the fry. These suckers are BIG. Normally mine aren't this size until they're about 7 days old. Tonight they're not getting fed and tomorrow they're being fed VE while I set up my brine shrimp hatchery. Due to moving my MW, BW, and WW are all in need of some TLC so I'm trying out just going straight to BBS.
Lol Monroe... I havnt really named them. I call the male big boy or more recently "daddyo" and the female "mama".
I'm hoping for good things from this spawn. My bannana and walter worm cultures are doing better than I thought so I won't have to jump straight to bbs. They're in a 5 gallon right now but I think I'm going to try to transfer them to a 10 by the end of the week or next week at the latest. That way I'll be able to get a little more heat on them. I'm going to fill a 10 today and see if I can gert a stable 82 * in it.
Babies will be a week old tomorrow :) Started daily water changes yesterday. Right now I'm only doing about a gallon of water, just enough to clean up the bottom a bit. Once they're 10-14 days old I'll start doing bigger water changes.
They're eating wormies right now. Mainly Walter and Banana worms but my micros are finally ready to fed as well. I'll probably start BBS at 14 days.
