photos will help, i have seen red wag platy spawns, and i think they where mickey mouse (i don't remember the last ones). i cared for them since i had no micro worms, i gave them crushed flakes and they ate it. i started with 20, and ended with 18, since my dad made me get rid of them and sell them to a fish store. they got like | | that big since i had them from | | that small or smaller.
you could give better care than i did since i wasn't ready for babies (the tank was ;]) but i gave them crushed flakes and they loved it, i had a 3 gallon filter, it wasn't a sponge filter but they lived, had plants, & cleaned the tank once a week. my uncle had red wag platy babies, but one day he felt bad for the mother so he released her and she ate all of them =p. he also gave them crushed flakes because he was going to get a bass or something for the tank. you could try BBS or MWs but i never tried it. hope this helped
I was worried they wouldn't survive being transferred from their ziploc to the candy jar drum bowl thing I have them now - I had 50% water from the goldfish tank they were born in, with 50% new conditioned water, and figured on doing a 50% change every other day? I would guesstimate that drum to be about .8 gallons.
Haha wow, so these guys could have been living in there for awhile? I'm glad to know they aren't so fragile! I've never raised fry before. My goldfish tank has an elaborate and huge moss structure, so I guess they could have been living there.
Do you think that tank is adequate? Is there a chance for an aggression?
how big is the tank? when they get bigger maybe unless the tank is big enough i don't know how big the tank for one you could do some research on them on caring for the young ones (this sound a little offesive but i don't mean it that way) just make sure there is good space.
but in the photo it looks somewhat small
I've been doing some research yeah, my hope is to allow them to be in that smaller tank until they are big enough to not be eaten, or get another tank of that size. I'm doing a betta rescue and have a million tanks as it is.
They're getting bigger every day! the bigger one is definitely a girl, I think the small one is a boy.
