Thank you :)

I was already dosing the main tanks with prazi so when I did water changes, I changed the water for all tanks, prazi'd the main tanks, then did water changes for the fry using the prazi'd water in the main tank.

As of now, the fry are in a half-filled ten gallon tank so I use a mL pipet I got off of amazon to measure out a single dose of prazi.

I prazi'd all the fry from the day they hatched/day I found them and I've had no deaths so far :)

Good luck with yours!! They grow so much during the first month :D

Thank you, I read through your fry thread and found it very informative. The babies turned out gorgeous :)

I moved everyone into a 10 gallon tank with a sponge filter and an AC20 w/ a prefilter sponge. There are about 20-30 fry. I haven't gotten an exact count yet. Some of the fry are turning a lighter color while others are turning darker. I started feeding them Repashy SG along with their usual brine shrimp.

Oh wow! They're awesome! If I had the space and didn't live in Viking-land, I would be begging to get a few from you.
