The parents are doing beautifully and I will be repeating the spawn in about a month because...
I came home today to find most of my fry dead. I have not been doing anything different with the water or the food.
The fry were at the stage where they start breathing from the surface and I had filled the tank to the top a couple of days ago... guess is was a bad idea. I think they didn't figure it out and drowned. They had been doing great before and it's the first time I lose a spawn.
I have a handful of fry that are still swimming but I will cull them when I empty out the tank.
Thanks everyone for following and sharing this past month with my fry... will look forward to actually raising a spawn while you watch.
Oh! And I will be visiting my mother in Puerto Rico (where I grew up) and I already told her to locate an AIL tree for me so I can go and collect leaves! I'm running out so I was going to order but free leaves are better! Depending on how many I can get a hold of, I will share
They have to be dry for me to collect and it's been raining there a lot so we'll have to see.
