Waldo didn't really get into the frozen BBS. But I didn't try them til he was already used to his food dancing and hopping for him. :rofl

You could certainly try it. Also if you have some live plants put those in with them. They will find lots of good things to munch on there. :teehee

thanks for the tips !

the eggs were all stuck to my giant green temple plant so that's in there with them :D

i have no idea how all of the fry i've counted wound up on either the walls of the bin or the floor of the bin :rofl

it's very possible there's a boatload more clinging to the plant and i havn't seen them :thud

this is turning into quite the adventure !

i am so thankful to have my fellow kokonuts to guide me :wub:

some of the babies today (day 2 since hatching)
they don't really seem to moving around much, just kindof hanging out clinging to the walls and floor of the bin...
i did see one scurry to a new spot though- soooo cute :heart
can't wait until they begin swimming horizontally :teehee

Fed them their first meal of hikari 'first bites' today and was really pleased to see a few of them munching away :wub:
These little wigglers grow on me more and more with each new day :heart
