Thanks DQ :3

Still no hatching yet, but its only been about 32 hours. I read sometimes it can take them 72 to hatch? Either way it's good because I have to leave town again for Thanksgiving! I will be back as soon as they need to eat :)

I second that!! lol

I know many people don't but I always feed my males when they are taking care of the spawn. Some people say that it causes them to get hungry but I figured feed em and then they wont get hungry. None of my males have eaten good eggs or good fry. I have only spawned 5 times though, and I don't feel that that is enough to be 100 % certain, so time will have to tell. As of now I always feed my males and I will continue to until I see that it's a bad idea.
Either way I hope you succeed, because when you do I want to buy some of your fry

I think the same because when i was trying to breed for the first time, they just wouldnt spawn and all around this forum was "accidental" spawns and i was so mad. I just knew that i had to just keep trying and try not to get so mad. I reconditioned them for like the 3rd time and they finally spawned. (Third times the charm*) for some!

We have fry! So happy! Hopefully dad won't eat them. It's so hard to see them so I'm unsure of how many there are. I've been feeding dad too and it's worked out. I have video of them spawning as well as fry, I'll create a new thread for it.

I'm going out of town and was planning to return Sunday afternoon. I've heard some people say feed the fry as soon as they're free swimming, some people say 5 days after hatching, what do you guys think? This guy's being a good dad.

Well from experience, i feed them 5 days after because after their yolk sacs are dissolved, they eat infusoria which is very good for them. 5 days after gives them a good amount of time to dissolve their yolk sacs and then become free swimming and after the last few days of the five, they will start to be hungry and will that is when they are going to be able to eat and know what food is. Also, it helps to add moss balls. They love these things because they give off a lot of infusoria for them to eat while they eat other things as well.

I am so excited for you! Lol! What is the next thread called? And make sure you post the pictures and videos that you have for us:)

I'll probably call the thread, assuming they continue to live something boring like Yellow Marble/Koi Spawn ;)


Tisia is going to feed them for me Friday and hopefully Saturday as well.

I wish I knew a member that lived as close to me as Tisia does to you. It would be so much fun!
