Yes! Me too! Also, please excuse the music in my video, I tried to mask the furious clacking sound of my son on his keyboard writing a report for school. 😂

The Masitos are 12 days old today. I sucked up most of the gunk on the bottom of the 10 gal. tank today with a turkey baster today and found a few (3) casualties under the Indian Almond leaf. 😢
Did a 50% water change and raised the water level. Everybody else (175+) is eating well and looking pretty good. I don't expect to end up with that many but I will give it my best shot. They are still eating newly hatched Baby Brine Shrimp 2 times a day and I tested out a frozen Daphnia feeding to see if they were still too small. It looked like some of the bigger ones were eating them so I should be able to incorporate that in soon. I also turned up the spinge filter a tad to make sure enough water is being cycled and filtered as these guys grow.

Sorry to hear about the three. With 175 + there are going to be losses. I know what you are doing is the right thing and trying your very best to save all . The video shows the growth rate in a whole new light. Soon your going to need a lot of Jars to separate them, and a bigger tank for the young ladies.

I hope this new move of ours is done by June 1 so I can start setting up all the new tanks I had purchased last month. I think the large room in the basement Is going to be my new area for them. Plenty of room and a cement floor with drains, and heat.

You are right, I am trying my best to save all but do understand losses are inevitable. As a matter of fact, if this fry is anything like my last Koi x Koi, I will probably lose more than half of them by 6 week to 8 weeks due to one reason or another. Though it is sad, this may not be the worst case scenario as this means only the strongest and healthiest will make it to the end. I've learned a lot from my last spawn and will carry it forward this one 😊. And Mas says hi btw 😂.

I'm so excited about your move and the new fish room in the basement! Can't wait to hear about and see (pics) its progress!

Masitos are just about 2 weeks old and full of Brine shrimp. Sorry video from my phone kept going in and out of focus. Honestly, I think they look pretty much the same a week ago but just bigger. 😂 Enjoy.

Needed to make another DIY Brine Shrimp hatchery. Needed an extra one for the baby fry piggies. 😂

In other words it's getting bigger than both of you. LOL. It"s really amazing how it has grown for these little guys. You may have a better spawn survival going for you.

Ok, so I'm having an issue with some mystery particles....

I've posted in the planted tank forum and hopefully someone will be able to help. But here is the post.........
I normally post in the breeding and photo forums but thought folks here could help as the issue started when I added plants to my fry tank.
* A little background info. - I moved my Mustard Gas fry to a 10 gal tank when they were approx 5 days and added Hornwort from my LFS. This was a week and half ago as now the fry are 2 weeks old. I know that this store is family owned and grow their own Hornwort in their pond at the residence. I've purchased this plant from them before which are currently in my other tanks (no issues).
A few days ago I noticed and explosion of pond snails as well as these particles floating at the surface of the water along the edges (photo). They are off-white in color, thin and sometimes curved. I thought the were larvae but they do not appear alive.
I've tried to suck them out the particles and tiny snails using a turkey baster every day but they keep reappearing (both). I've added 4 Assassin snails from my other tank but the particles are starting to concern me as I don't know where they are coming from or if they are harmful to the fry.

The fry seem ok but I'm getting worried.
