Thread: Multi Fry!!!!
07-26-2012, 01:33 AM #1
My colony of multies is down to 6 from my original 8, but today, looking in the tank, I noticed we have fry! I saw at least one, but they are in the shells, so I probably have more. They are visibly fish.... In other words, I'm guessing several weeks old.
Do I need to feed fry food (Hikari small bites) or will they do well with the regular food I'm giving the parents?
Do I need to remove them from the tank?
I'M SO EXCITED! I've been hoping for babies!

That's fantastic. I'm afraid for this batch as I'm going out of town for the next week... I'm leaving feeders, but still. Anywho, this is the parents' first batch, so I'm anxious for more.
Thanks for the gift!

The fry should be fine. When you said 'feeders' did you mean an autofeeder or one of those feeder blocks? Some feeder blocks can mess up the water quality fairly quickly. I use auto feeders on several of my tanks, they drop a certain amount of flakes or pellets each day. Some feeders drop food every 12hr, others you can set the time for when they drop food. It's a good investment I think, makes my life easier and keeps the fish on a regular daily feeding for when I'm not at home. Work great for when you go on vacation as well, they can hold a few weeks of food easily in them.

We have three autofeeders. We were going to use 2 on our largest tanks but couldn't figure out where to use the third... That's a great idea, thanks for reminding me! The rest of the tanks, we will use feeder blocks. Man, I forgot we had a third automatic feeder! :)
