Well that would be the 10 or the 40.. Looks like the 10..

Or back to petco in the am.

Petsuppliesplus sent me a $5 off 30 purchase, and petco said they'd let me use it.. So maybe I'll pick up something there.

I have fry!

I scraped some eggs off the rock this morning and into a breeder net. I figure in there they'll get enough current to not get fungus in the last few days of incubation.

I ran out to run some errands and came back to some hatched fry... Or as I call them floating eyes.

I've counted 4 so far, but honestly, I don't think I'd see them if they were on the bottom mesh.

Eggs:



Eggs next to an exacto knife for a sense of scale:

I've counted a dozen fry at this point. One of them is moving around quite a bit. Most of them are just hanging out but will swim away if I get near with the feeding syringe.

If you continue with the success I'd be interested in taking some of them off your hands as I've been looking for some! If you need microworms I can supply some to you as well!

congrats on the fry! do you have BBS and rotifers? they can feed off of them when they become free swimmers.

also if you have any floating plants i would recommend putting them in the breeder box (or where ever they are) as it will provide some infusoria for them to feed off until they are large enough to feed off BBS and Rotifers

They're on BBS, vinegar and presoaked hikari first bites. Assuming they do well, they'll be available for sale.
