I dont even remember when I first signed up.. I just know it was this month.. lol and that is only because it says it under my picture. But I do know that I have learned more here than I would have in a week worth of research by myself. :) Even right now it's 2am for me and i should probably be sleeping but I dont want to since I know theres more I can learn on here XD

lol, the same happened to me when i turned 20 (which was only a month ago)..
I know, im a bit confused too, i know you should only have 10-15cm of water for when mum and dad spawn but then the whole adding water for the fry. Im not too sure about. Luckily I have 2 more weeks to get more sorted.! Hopefully someone else will join the thread and help us both out.

I have my spawn in a 10 gallon. Which is also filled up. There is maybe an inch from that top that I didnt fill up maybe 1.5 inches. so now im not sure if I should empty it a bit or just leave it...... :/

yeah.... Hopefully someone will be able to reply in time to help you.. I was under the impression that you didn't added water until they were about 1.5cm big. But I honestly do not know. I am still trying to research the whole taking care of fry once made and hatched...
And Thank You :D

Yeah, it's hard because everyone has their own method so it's really just a trial and error. But at the same time I do not want to spend all the time and effort and one thing go wrong and I lose all my fry, I would be heart broken. How long did MrVampire say they leave dad in for? I know some people leave him in until they are old others only leave him in until the fry are freeswimming... I think in the end it is up to you. I just can't imagine that when they go to take their frist breath having to swim that high would be possible since theyre so little still.
