Hi guys!

I recently purchased 4 WCMM and the female is pregnant.

Anyone got any tips for the fry care????

She is currently in a breeder net with floating plants and I might add plastic grass on the bottom for the eggs.

So anyone got any tips for the fry, thanks! Very Happy

Let her out to swim with the males.
WCMM are egg layers and the eggs are fertilized externally while the fish chase around.

Fry can easily be raised as long as there is plenty of plant cover in the tank & no predators.

Oh there is plenty of plant cover but there is also ruby barbs and tiger babs and loaches!

Highly unlikely any eggs will not get eaten then.
