    Default Baby Honey Gourami

    0 Not allowed!
    When I went to go clean my aquarium I noticed my honey gourami male was guarding some baby fish. Can I clean the aquarium sand without replacing a lot of water so that I don't disturb the bubble nest? It's a 55g tank and the other fish are 12 harlequin rasboras and 2 female gourami. I don't really plan on breeding these little guys, but I don't want to completely ruin their chances of survival either :)

    Don't know about your question but if you want hem to survive hard boil a egg and put just yolk in a small plastic container and add alittle bit of water so it becomes like a paste and feed small amount to babys every day sometime twice a day and make sure to put some live plants that they can hide in under the bubble nest planted in gravel depending on plant but it has to be live or they won't get enough food to survive
    A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel
    do as I say, not as I do- William
    I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.

    Yeah you could take less out to keep the nest from being disturbed.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Thanks. I'm debating whether or not I want to try to raise them because I'm moving in 3 weeks and I doubt they would be big enough to survive the trip.

    they grow quite fast though. If you get them to survive the first few weeks they get much tougher. The biggest challenge for the first weeks is getting the tiny fry to feed. my honey gourami breeding tank is where I squeeze out the sponges of the other tanks, to provide the young ones with micro-organisms.
