dcg Hi, Mystic, look at the bright side, at least you will not hassle with lots of jars this time. 😉

MysticSky22301 Thanks feng ^^ I had quite a few things against me with this one, at least I don't have to move a bunch of fry ( other than my guppies) and I can keep my next batch in more stable conditions and away from bumbling house mates and thirsty cats -_-

By the time I move my brine shrimp will be grown and I can stuff my breeding pair with high protein food. Pokey didn't like the mealworms Artemis loved them so he wasn't as fat and happy as she was

Fenghuang Aw, I'm so sorry. I had a bunch of failed spawns where one or two weak fry hatched and didn't survive very long... It sucks!!! But you've had yours for a bit now, so the survival rate is definitely better. Fingers crossed!

MysticSky22301 Hopefully, pokey is looking fat and sassy lol so I'm hoping he doesn't eat as many this time

Sadist Aww, poor babies. Hopefully, after the move, the next spawn will do better.

MysticSky22301 And suddenly I had one fry... So I did a water change and my last fry is sitting on the bottom not moving I'm almost literally banging my head against the wall at this point... If he doesn't make it I'll try again after the move it will be about 3 weeks so keep your eyes peeled another spawn log, likely the same pair they really liked each other

Fenghuang Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. I never had a problem with my fry cannibalizing each other (that I have seen), but I have heard of it happening many times with other people's spawns. I hope your two survivors do well for you.

MysticSky22301 Well I'm down to 2 fry -_- the largest one apparently tried to eat the smallest and killed it they are STARTING to get anal fins I can see a transparent line under their bodies ^^ I don't see dorsals yet but I counted the little rays in their tails and came up with 10

MysticSky22301 I used eels and microworms solely until they were a week and a half old so I can stop Ve any time? They love BBS but I don't want to useit as the only food because of swim bladder problems that tend to arise. I might keep alternating between all of them until something just doesn't interest them

trilobite Yep thats problably the only good use for guppies haha. Mine learnt the hard way after my bbs didnt hatch, it was either eat the dry food or starve...luckily only about 5 or so were too stubborn to eat dry, but guppies are an easier way. Once the bettas hit a certain size theyll start eating anything you through at them without much fuss

Stop the eels after about day 3-4 of free swimming. As long as they are big enough to eat bbs then thats what their main food should be Vinegar eels dont have as many nutrients as bbs so you want to get them off them as soon as you can
You can add them when youre teaching them about bbs to help transition them though
