Well this time Rex (dad) and Tex (mum) decided that they didn't want to lay their eggs on the slate, easy access for removal of the eggs, they laid them on the bottom of the tank NEXT to the slate.. well done guys.

I managed to syphon a fair few of them up and put them in the "nursery" tank with some meth blue to see how I go this time.
The remainder of the eggs that I left in the tank turned into "fishy chocolate" and were all gone by the time I got home from work that day, but the eggs I syphoned started wriggling. 5 day old wrigglers I have at the moment, still with egg sack attached so I have yet to start feeding them.

I will give them a bit of a water change tonight - and see if I can get rid of eggs that went a bit furry and didn't hatch. I reccon they will be ready for a feed tonight or tomorrow, and I will see if I can't keep this lot alive.

anyway - I shall keep you all updated on the progress, and hopefully have them big enough to take a picture of in the next week or so.

cheers for now

well, babies are almost 2 weeks old now (from hatching) and seem (fingers crossed) to be doing better than any other batch I have had hatch. I even went away for the weekend and left them in the charge of my daugter, she did water change and every thing.

I will post some pics if I get a chance tonight after work..

cheers

now you are in deep trouble..... don't you know that hatching and keeping fries
will force to buy another tank.... and once they grew up and become crowded
requires another tank..... you will find it difficult to give them away or sell
at low price.... you will surely be hit by MTS soon! :P :P :P
