Thread: Three Baby Fish

  1. Exclamation Three Baby Fish


    0 Not allowed!
    This morning I noticed 3 new members in my tank. It is new (week and half old tank) 55 gallon with 3 Mollies, 2 Silver Dollars, 3 Neons and 2 Cardinals. I know, not very smart combination, but everything looks peaceful and nobody is chasing nobody. I still think I should protect those babies. What are my options?

    This is the crop of large image and quality is not the best, but I hope good enough to recognize the kind. They are maybe half inch long...
    Please what is the best I can do?

    Here is the other surprise I found this morning. First I couldn't locate the second Dollar and almost missed him behind the upper suction part on my filter, stuck. I carefully freed him and he seems to be ok, but there is obvious imprint on his left side. Is he going to be ok?

    Anyway, I got the answer in other community so I saved the three babies setting the fake moss. And the Dollar is ok. Imprint disappeared and there is no sign of injury.

    Thank you. This was probably very common situation but new for me. Fish stuck to the filter intake was a nice addition. Everything looks ok now and that's all that matters.

    You can put a piece of sponge over the filter intake, I use the penguin reverse-flow powerhead replacement sponges in all my tanks for that purpose. Keeps the duckweed and fallen plant leaves from clogging the filter intakes.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.
