Well for me anyways..:ezpi_wink1:

Today i went to my dads to feed my turtles and fish and my kribs got me a back to school gift! I saw that the male AND female were out and swimming aroundd the coconut and driftwood for the first time in a week so i looked everywhere and say i had ONE FRY! I was super excited and went to get my mom who was in the war(waiting for me) and i couldn`t find it again..so i looked more and four a LOAD of them! they were everywhere near a stem of my plants! I took out the snails and put them in a 10g(cycled) and also my male that was eating them(never thought he would):sconfused: And now their is only my female that is guarding them from my SAE and Convict cichlid.

I was wondering when whould i remove them from the tank? I`m thinking a week?

Anyways...Cheers:19: :9:

Ok so today i have about 50 free swimming fry.. Going to put in 3/4th of the fry in a 5g with a plant (planted in terra cota pot) and a rock( no substrate)

Most sites don`t really say if i should seperate or not and since im not sure, why not try both?

The next thing to figure out is what to feed them..currently, I have Nutrafin guppy fry or livebearer or whatever...

ill le tyou guys know!

You can feed them crushed flakes. Like crush it into almost a powder and that will work.
