I said I'd never do it again...

...but here I am with some new fry :rofl

Last week I collected some eggs from one of my tanks (around 20 eggs). Most were not fertile, but 2 were. Today I found 2 more fertile eggs in the tank, and within 10 minutes of moving them over to the container I was keeping the other 2 eggs in, they'd hatched :o

Here's one of them;

And here are the potential parents;

I'm pretty excited about how these fry are going to turn out, and I'm so happy it's such a small number. I will do my best to keep this thread updated this time :D:rofl

Congrats....I think. :doh11:

You're a better fish mom than me...after two batches of fry I don't think I'll do it again. The two fry of my orange momma and white/tancho daddy are standard carp color, dark blackish brown.

Lis, I'm in awe of your beautiful psychedelic fish and I hope their fry grow up as interesting looking. Given that you're starting out with only 4 don't be too hard on yourself if they don't make it. That said, best of luck to you and the little eyelashes. :happydance

The potential parents ... I'm guessing the mum is cutiebean but who is the dad?? The babies look so small and adorable I could hug them (but it may kill them)

Congratulations, Lis! I can believe saying "I won't do it again." and then doing it. Fry are just too cute for that.

Here is Pierogi:

I would love for his colors to change, as I have a black pond liner and can't see either of them well.

Here is a very cute shot of their parents being all lovey dovey. Queen B is the bigger one, Shinto is the tancho-style daddy.

Thanks everyone:D there are now 10 tiny little fry, I pulled 6 little guys out of the tank this morning :D

Yay!!! Congrats! These will be some fun fish to watch as they grow! :heart

Good luck!!! If you don't mind my asking, how are the other fry? :idont

The other fry are okay, the numbers have decreased, but there's still way too many. I have 8 quite nice fry (5 ranchus and 3 with dorsals), who live separately and are growing well. They're no where near as big as they should be, it really bugs me, but lack of space hasn't helped. I need to find a way of rehoming them, because I just don't think being with me is good for so many fry. I need an empty pond or something :rofl but thank you for asking how they are :)

Below is a 15 second video of some of the fry from my first attempt at raising fry :)

You'll have to give me some info on breeding fish and raising the fry. I want to try it sometime in the future

Today they are 2 days old :Dhttp://instagram.com/p/quFWRWC9lB/

I'm not going to go down the live food route if I can help it - it's a pain and it's pretty messy. I found this product online last time and used it, and it was really good :)
