Fry with issues

Recommended Posts

He's the greatest thing I've ever seen. Truly. Life is amazing. (not to be religious) but he's a miracle from God.

He's such a great guy to watch. I fall asleep watching him swim some nights. He tends to freak if he notices I'm watching though. It's the cutest thing!

I'm no professional, but I'd like to offer a couple quick ideas for your next round of babies. I totally agree with the 100% water change daily for fry after you start feeding them. Lots of people use a turkey baster, i never had any luck with it. I used a straw and a bit of airline tubing. Cut one end of the straw at an angle and slip the flat end over the airline tubing. You can start a suction by inhaling on the end of the airline tubing (careful not to get a mouthful of fry water) and use the angled end of the straw to suck up debris. The intake is very gentle, less risk of nabbing a wayward fry and very easy to clean up leftover food. It's like a mini version of the siphon you use on your tanks =3 Good luck to little Bill! Best fishes!

Thanks for that =) I will probably try that but I don't know how I feel about being that close to drinking gross water. =/

If you just fill the tube full of water, plug up both ends then unplug the drain end first it should syphon. If that makes any kinda sense :)

That makes total sense! Way better than almost chugging a bunch of water. Kind of like how kids play with straws in restaurants. Put it in the soda, plug the top, pull out the straw filled with soda, dump on table XD

Never! We didn't do such things... I only encouraged my little sister to do it... then she would get in trouble and I'd laugh. =p
