    Thanks LH.

    I have a few empty tanks in my basement I could use including a 29g and a 55g. The 29g would probably make a great fry growout tank. Hmm...

    I just checked the filters and found about 10 fry in them so after getting them back into the tank I added pieces of Aquaclear sponges to the intakes.

    Update: There are now about 8 fry left in the tank. Those that remain are growing well and are very active. The parents are still doing a good job with them.

    I managed to ger a couple slightly better pics with my cheap camera:

    A couple of the fry in the plants:





    I read that Salvinis provide their fry with food for the first month so I am leaving them together for at least that long. If anything, it will be good practice for them when the next batch arrives.

    Awesome. They look like they're doing great and you know how a reasonable number to deal with.

    What are you feeding them? They are growing so fast! Soon they will move out and never call.

    But if you get them cell phones they will text.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
