I started up on the BBS hatchery as recommended by Ms. Lis.

The little ones will get some noms here soon :)

:Scoff:  Wait til you see them eat.  If you watch them a lot now, be prepared to get nothing else done once they start eating.  :rofl  It's so cute!  Then you see the food in their fat bellies.  :teehee

I gave the little ones some frozen BBS because there were so many little free swimmers :) The hatchery is still going and will hopefully be ready tonight or at least by tomorrow morning. :)

If you have Repashy powder you can sprinkle some of that in there.  :D

I was wondering!! :) Perfect because I think I'm going to only be able to do one batch of live BBS a day as my air pump won't run two lines very well...  :doh11: I'm gonna keep fiddling with it. I also have First Bites on the way so they won't be wanting for food :P

Mel if you haven't already, toss a plant or two from the main tank in there.  Lots of yummies to munch on.  :feedme

I did a WC today and got a count. There are 24 cuties :heart hopefully they will continue to thrive :D

That's a wonderfully manageable number! Room for culling if needed, or a couple random die-offs (it happens), but still leaving you with plenty of babies.

That's what I was thinking. I already had one die off. It was stuck in a curve all yesterday and was the same this morning. I let him go :( poor baby.

I'm so excited to see them grow hehe

So I didn't think today would be hard for me but when you're culling and looking them all over those cute little faces just seem to beg at you :cry

Keepers in the left, poor little ones on the right :cry :cry :cry

Growing pretty good!

 

I don't think I'd be able to cull any of the fry if my fish have any babies :(  I know it has to be done sometimes but..... :cry

How hard was it to decide which ones to let go?  Were there obvious deformities?

I think you made the right move... I did not cull my fry, and paid for it down the road. I knew that i should, but i think my curiosity/inexperience got the best of me. :idont
