First baby!

So finally, after 4 months (though they came as juvies), my fire reds have yielded at least one fry. It's so tiny and already showing color! Should I put some bebi in, or do you think it'll be fine feeding off biofilm?

I put in bee pollen. Might as well give the baby a good start!


I think there are tiny baby shrimp in my tank, but I haven't seen them yet.

I can see lots of baby scuds though. Will have to figure out how to harvest them for betta snacks.

Congrats, I add very little mosura bebi once a week for the babies. Usually I find the babies feeding on the brown algae on my tank glass or micro organizms from the moss, plants and sponge filter.
