21/08 (11pm) The fry have hatched.

I think I see about a dozen but they are so tiny and the bubbles so big they hide pretty well. At some point I saw at least 6 sinking to the bottom. Dad was so busy picking them up that he didn't even bothered flaring at me. He just turned away and kept his endless job while I observed. He needs a great treat as soon as he is done so we are upgrading his aquarium

How many would you guess?

Very small water change today. About 10% only. Will test the water later today and do more if needed.

23/08 (11pm) Free swimming! Daddy was taken out. Had their first meal.

Feeding them every 6 hours, very little amounts.

24/08 (9am) Saw tiny tiny worms not visible with the naked eye in the tank. Had to use a professional x10 to see the babies better but could see tiny specks through it so went and got a x100 in my phone to check them out. I freaked out. Though this is it they all gona die. Researched the crap out of it. Found nothing like it. The camera won't focus enough but its the longest white dot.

24/08 (5pm) still looking at them interacting with the worms. Finally saw them eating one. I was finally relieved until I told my bf. Now he is asking what if they are parasites? Here we go I'm freaking out again...

This morning I decided enough was enough. Instead of trying to pipette all the dirt out of my fry thank i was simply going to transfer the fry with 10% of their water and 90% of aged water into another "tank". I had counter 44 fry, I assumed I missed about 20 so I was expecting it would be alot easier to transfer the fry than to try and get rid of the dirt. How wrong was I... 5 hours later job is done, I hope. Counted 301 fry

Congratulations on your fry!


I can't imagine 5 hours of pure tank cleaning/transferring the babies. OI! It's been a hot minute since I have had to do long fish maintenance like that. It'll be so worth it once you get to see all of your little fry babies all grown up.

Fingers crossed you get lot's of healthy fry and no issues. I look forward to seeing more pictures as the fry age.

It's also good for me to keep track :) so far the biggest note is how absolutely great the dad is. Hasn't been with the fry for days now but still making bubbles
