They're so cute.
How often and what percent of water changes do you have to do for them?

They're quite a lot to take care of! But very worth it if you ask me ^_^

They will need at least 50% done every day if the tank is under 5 gallons, You can get away with doing a 100% every other day but if you can do every day that's going to be much healthier for them and better for them in the end; they'll grow faster since the growth hormone won't stunt their growth. And then they need to be fed preferably every 3-4 hours but 2-3 times a day will suffice. Small but frequent meals are the key to growth!

I agree :) I have LOVED having my babies around - I love my older boys too, but I think I've bonded more with the babies :)

I LOVED taking care of all three of my babies and just got a fourth last week! I find that 50% water changes on any unfiltered tank (or less than 5 gallons) daily works best. If it's 5+ gallons and cycled and filtered, you can do 50% every other day like I did with the first baby I got (and she grew like a weed!).

My guess is female. I'm sure s/he will recover. I need another baby.

So, how many babies should I start out with........hint, hint LOL

Now when you say "guess," is that guess based on the way this baby looks? Or just a random guess? lol I was thinking male because I didn't see an ovipostor and the ventral fins seem long, although s/he has them tucked up in this photo. But I really don't know... Just curious about what makes this baby look like a female. Any idea what color s/he will end up being?

Hmm, I though I saw ovaries at first. Now that I have stared at it for 2 mintues...I reconsider my guess.
