    And today's update at 5pm.


    All the fry are free-swimming now. The ones in the 5g are staying at the bottom, and the fry in the parents tank are swimming against the currents of the HOB near the surface. I imagine this is harder on the little fry, but the survivors will be really stronger than say the fry that don't have to swim very hard, but don't tire out either.

    The dad angelfish head-butted the camera at the end, "Get away! I'm warning you!"

    This is all such fun to follow along with -- thanks for sharing it!

    The parental defending thing at the end was neat to see. They told you they'd had enough of your nonsense, already! haha silly fish

    Tx! I'm keeping my eye on the survival rate. And intend to steal stragglers when the parents aren't looking maybe......Once I ever see a parent eating a baby, or their numbers go down quickly, I want to 'turkey baster' or siphon them out.

    *in my WC on the 5g fry tank today, I used an airline syphon (first time using this) with a net screen on the intake end, watched very carefully and still siphoned up 4 babies! Luckily they were fine and I just transferred then back to the 5g out of the bucket I drain the water into with my turkey baster. It's the easiest way to move them around.

    This is a good way to move fry, you could just siphon them up into a pitcher of tank water w/out the screen, then pour into the breeder tank

    Yep, I could, but I steal them when they are not free-swimming yet, so a baster works well. I tried syphoning then with a regular syphon when they were wigglers, but they were too sticky and the syphon wasn't strong enough to unstick them from the leaf. The turkey baster is much more precise I find, especially since I only took some of the wigglers and left the rest. Believe me, they are all bunched together at that stage and really tiny!

    Another angelfish pair in one of the 33g breeder tanks spawned last night. It's my Gold pearlscale/Platinum pair. The platinum male is notorious for eating the eggs when the lights go out on the tank, so I was going to watch and if/when he started, was going to save the eggs (clip the leaf with eggs and add to the 5g fry tank near the sponge filter output) BUT I missed it!!!! Awwwww:( Eggs were gone right after the light went out. At least I got a chance to video the spawn.....

    That was neat, sorry they ate the eggs, though

    If you didn't tell me they were spawning, I would think something was wrong with them, lol
