My female has really gotten in the mood recently and has done back to back spawns.

These are 2.5 weeks old:


These came out 2-3 days ago:


I think I have 10 at about thumbnail size now, 30 odd at 2 weeks old and 40 odd new born. Pretty impressed how many fry one female can produce considering she has to carry them all and starve for 2 weeks+ every batch!

This is the problem once fish start breeding - they keep doing it & more space is needed.
I used a lot of underbed storage boxes for fry rearing. You could put several plastic tanks in one tub. One heater for four tanks and one airpump driving five lines - one in each tank in a plant pot filter and one to an airstone to circulate the heat in the outer bath.

Very cute babies and they look well fed. What foods are you using?

The little ones are on microworms/BBS; bigger ones on BBS/grindal worm. I don't tend to move onto dry food at all until they can take my NLS pellet.

May have to get myself some storage boxes soon, especially if these keep it up. Relying a bit on floating Tupperware as you probably noticed!
