    Endler Fry

    A little less than a month ago I received a pair of sky blue endlers from Aquatic Arts. However, I had ordered yellow tiger endlers! They corrected this mistake and sent me the tiger endlers the following week. The sky blues went into one of my Spec V tanks and the tigers are now in my 25g tank with the red Beckford pencilfish.

    For some reason, the male sky blue endler didn't make it after about 2 weeks. I then moved one of my male blue star endlers from my 20g tank in with her for just a few days. She was harassing him like crazy so I moved him out. Today I found 5 endler fry in this tank with the sky blue female. (there's also 5 chilis and 3 Habrosus cories in there). Assuming these fry make it, I'm assuming they'll be blue sky endlers as the blue star was only there about a week ago for a few days.


    No breeding yet from the tiger endlers (both still alive and well) but I worry about the pencilfish predating on them, if not the endler parents. Will be keeping close watch on this larger tank.

    Diamond Tetra Fry

    Just after spotting the endler fry, while doing a water change on my 40g today I found another diamond tetra fry. This one was large enough to be out and about with the others so I missed his very early childhood. There's very little moss left in here as much of it had died and I cleaned it out. The tank really needs a complete overhaul (a lot of algae covered java fern and other plants not doing well) but I hesitate to do that when I see breeding of any sort going on - even a single fry. Maybe a fall project.

    Sad to say, I have only 3 endler fry left today. They are so tiny, I think feeding is the main issue. although the female may have gotten a couple. I've been feeding mostly frozen baby brine shrimp, occasional ground flakes, and a dry fry food I have but I think even that is a little too large. I have some golden pearls ordered but they won't be here until next week. So much smaller than when I had regular guppy fry.
