Ah, I didn't know that. I was gonna let him live unless he really has a severe spinal issue anyway. That was some handy information thanks.

Cool! Feel free to indulge yourself with all your viewing pleasure. How much water change and how often do youdo yours? Howmany times and what food do you feed your fry? So maybe we can compare them and see which would make the fry grow faster

I've been doing 50-75% water changes every day or second day. (Every second day if I'm too exhausted to do a day lol). As for food, I've got microworms, egg yolk, and BBS. I usually feed them 2-3 times a day. I don't feed them the same food for every meal though, I kinda alternate, like, egg yolk in the morning then MW at night, next day it'll be BBS and microworms, etc. It really varies haha. How about you?

I do 50% water change every night and feed them with grindal worms. I stopped feeding them walter worms now cause they tend to ignore it and would rather eat the grindal worms.haven't tried egg yolks yet, but i have tried frozen chopped bloodworms and dried bloodworms and daphnia but no luck, same as flakes and pellets, they just spit it out. My fry are too picky eaters.

The walterworms are the same as microworms and for grindal worms you just need to buy a culture and add fish flakes or whatever you want to feedip it, i feed my grindal woprms dried blood worms and daphnia. I find that they grow konger and fatter compare to flakes
