AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! I DID IT!!!!! My zebras layed their eggs a tall community tank! and the eggs hatched!!! The fry stick to the wall and make attempts to swim before they go back to the wall. What do I do to save them? It is a tall breeding tank with a heater and a small sponge filter. What do i feed them, when do I feed them, what temp, when do i change the water? thanks!

You can feed them finely ground flake or egg yolk.

For the egg yolk paste it is simple:
1. Hardboil an egg or two
2. Remove yolk from egg and discard white. (or eat it)
3. Mix yolk with water until it makes a thick paste
4. Use a toothpick (or something else small) and get a little yolk paste on the end of it
5. Stick the toothpick in your tank and swirl it around making a little protein cloud for the fry!
(Provided to me by 100gw)

Be careful not to over feed. Feed small amounts often (a few times a day) until they are excepting regular flake.

I would hold off on the water changes until they are big enough that you can clearly see them so you don't suck 'em up. Plus, water changes will stress them.

Should I run the filter?

How long does a female glowfish danio stay prego before she lays eggs? My boyfriend's has been fat for just under two weeks.

It depends on how willing the males are to mate, usually.
