  1. Hi Dnalex, Thanks. Always relief to get a specific answer. Appreciation
  2. Hi, I allow myself to join in the conversation First of all Katearei, congrats with your fry. Are they still doing fine? I also have young fry and intend to give them prazi. They are now five days old and I think I'm gonna wait till week 3-4 before starting the treatment though I've read few suggesting use of prazi during the first week, any comments/advice on that?. Anyway, I would like to have advice concerning the dose! Should I calculate the prazi-dose exactly the same way as I do for my adult fish? Thanks
  3. Thanks, Flipper! The fry look good and they are growing
  4. Hi Ashlee, thanks for your advice. The fry are in my 14,3 gallon (54L) tank, the water level now lowered from 15 to 12 cm (4,7 inches). I did wc yesterday evening (10%) and I'm planning the to siphon the same amount this evening. Is that sufficient do you think? Bought a turkey baster yesterday and sucked dirt up with it. They are pooping and it's definitely without feeding?! An hour ago I gave them 4 baby shrimp only two of the fry began nipping to the food. It is their third day. How long are they able to stay unfed? Excuse me for the question but what does "angel fry" refers to? I just got curious.
  5. Hi there, Thank you for your advice to give no advice I just have low expectations to my own intuition in this regard. During my first effort to siphon water with a pump line tube I was quite certain that no fry went through to the bucket I had for waste water and just as I was about to pure the water out I saw four fry babies, two of them was still swimming and to looked certainly as if they've had their back broken... Instead of looking strait like the letter "I" they had a capital letter "L" shape. Well thanks God I somewhere in here people use a spoon to transport fry with so I rescued the still swimming babies back to the tank. So I guess I better stick to others advice. Concerning my later plans for the fry, I simply don't believe that I'm gonna end up with 100 nor 50 nor 20... I think I'm gonna kill them all in one of my siphon efforts. Let's wait and see! Is there a crucial period of their survival? What is the most crucial period of their growth to adulthood?

  7. Sorry for the late reply and thanks for showing interest Ashlee. Had to head home to count meanwhile. It turned out to be rather problematic counting the fry...each time I did a recount the number got higher...so there are 118 or 128 or 137 so guess somewhere in between. Ps. fellowing your updates and your fry look good...like when they get roundish and yours did at an early stage
  8. I read some few of them thanks...and I´m still researching...phuuuhh. There are quite some I would say. It's my first time breeding and just do not want it to turn into a failure...it will make me sad. Guess I have to be less fussy about it.
  9. Hi Helen, Thanks for the advise. Here are some pics: http://s1275.photobucket.com/user/leifnemo/library/fry?sort=3&page=1 Any comment or advise is welcome
  10. Hi there, Just signed in for a membership here at Kokos for the main reason to keep my debut fry alive! I know if I would search for proper advise it should be in here Yesterday evening around 10 o'clock (Danish time, GMT + 2 hours) the eggs hatched successfully. I filled up my 14,3 gallon (54L) tank to half the volume which is 27 liters. I added a thermostat heater fixed at 22 Celsius (71,6 Fahrenheit) plus a low pumping air pump. Up to the hatching I've done regular water change (twice a day) 50% a time. Of course I can't maintain that level of water change any longer and here are my questions: How often should I change the water? How much each time? And how? I really hope that they will make it. The male is a Ryukin and the female is a Pearl scale Looking forward to see what you guys have to say. Ps. I know I would find the answers to my questions somewhere among older threads but going through a lot of threads without finding clear answers I decided to start this topic and sorry for that.
