    The first pair that I originally bought bred again about 7 days ago and this time I made a precaution of not committing the same mistake again. Just after the pair laid/fertilized the eggs, I waited a few more hours before transferring the driftwood (the item that the pair chose to lay their eggs) and placed it in a 2 gal plastic tank. I also placed a heater that auromatically sets it to 79 degrees and an airstone placed near the eggs to simulate the fanning motion of the parents. Last friday, the eggs hatched and there's about 30 to 40 wrigglesrs out of the possible 100 eggs laid. I have started making 2 cultures of infusoria and microworms and see which among the two the frys will take when they start free swimming. My question in does it take 3 or more days before the frys start swimming? This is my first time to raise rams and am a bit nervous and at the same time excited. I will try to take some picture of the frys tonight to share with you guys. Also, how much water change will I have to do and how often?

    Thanks in advance to all.

    at that temp it will be 3 days, possibly 4 before they are free swimming. Don't feed until they are all up swimming.

    Next time add a several drops of acriflavin to the container
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    Thanks to all for the advices. As promised here are some pictures of my newly free swimming frys. They are now in an infusoria diet (made from decayed vegetables submerged in water for about a week). How long will I feed them infusoria?









    I stand corrected. Instead of 30 to 40 that survived the hatching I now believe that they are close to 50 to 55 out of a possible 80 eggs laid. I am so elated about them now free swimming. Can't wait for them to reach about an inch in size.

    Feed infusoria for about a week to 3 weeks. Keep nitrate slow, because they are very sensitive to them.
    CORRECTED video of my fish. This link works. For sure. Really.

    Tanks:
    20g long: 4 panda cories, 1 honey gourami, 1 apistogramma borellii, 1 male cacatuoides
    20g High: 3 bolivian rams, 12 rasboras
    8g hex: empty
    5g: empty
