Fry is the farthest I've gotten! This is my third spawn in the last couple weeks so I'm glad something worked out finally.

Some say to feed them after free swimming, some say to feed them 5 days after hatching, what are your guys' thoughts?

I start when they are free swimming, after Dad has been removed. I, too won't start a spawn log until I have swimming fry.:)

GreenTea, I start feeding them when they all have maintained a horizontal shape, and they are free-swimming without the help of Daddy or falling.

If your planning to get show nice fish out of breeding.
Your planning to spend about 1,000 with set up, breeding pair, food and time spent caring.

I can see it adding up very easily. I want to get healthy consistent fry over multiple batches to do the fish honor before going past my knowledge and experience. I do hope to have you see my spawn and get your thoughts in time.

Thank you dead sunlight. May I ask your favorite color and style. I have dreams of making a fish I saw for $30 on AB. Got discouraged at first then it drove home to me that it is the process of me creating the fish and not that already it exists. Thank you for your thoughts.

I'll be starting my spawn log tomorrow all. Fry are free swimming and eating egg yolk successfully!
