PostSubject: my first spawn   Wed Oct 27, 2010 7:03 pm

while just gazing into one of my tanks today i noticed this little thing sort of just sitting on the glass, it was hard to make out it looked like some sort of egg with a tail and head, i just had to get it out and have a proper look, and yes it was a lovely little bn....i was well pleased with my self and started to look for more then i found about 20 more just sticking to the top corner of the tank under the water thats coming in. i collected about four and put them in with my baby killi fry and was wondering should i get the rest or just leave them to it???? Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Nice one bro!

In terms of leaving them or taking them out, is there anything else in the tank with them? If there is then Yes i would take them out to save them from becoming snack food. But be really careful hadeling them as the slightest splash or poke can rupture internal organs and thats not good.

if they are not in any danger of being eaten then i would leave them in there Smile

Congrats on finding some fry...A lovely surprise, I would agree with Doug, If any one is in there that will eat them, take em out, if not leave em with dad...

it depends on many things. Was one of the parents albino? or do you know if the parents are carring the albino gene?

Some fry do take longer to colour up than others so give it a week or two Smile
