Congrats on the babies! I had about 200 Jewel babies and they lived with Mom & Dad for about 2 weeks before I accidentally killed them all... except for Dad. I overdid it on a water change. :( I am jinxed when it come to babies though! Yours look awesome! I'm with Nicki... carefully move them and keep the pics coming! They grow super fast!!

There is a fine line between sanity and insanity.... Come walk it with me!

Thanks Brooksie,
I siphoned most of them (about 30) out yesterday afternoon. They were only with the parents about 2 days that I noticed , so hopefully it wasn't to soon. Although they are about 3mm long so maybe they are older than that.
Bought some fry food (which they don't seem to be eating) maybe when I'm not watching ;) .
Sorry about yours. It's a shame to have lost one of the parents - but it's all a learning thing hey.
We'll see what happens.

Congrats on your babies Stuart. :)
For your new babies I would recommend hatching some baby brine shrimp for at least 1 week. ;)
