Haha lol sorry. I have a couple Guppys and a black molly in with my Peps and the fry are fine, no probs. Once the male releases the fry they should b too big for the mollys and endlers to eat

think it be easier to move out mollies if i see them having a go at the fry as a few of the fry are darting around the tank while i watch atm the fry are around half size to a full grown male endler this was so uninspected as i have a breeding tank set up with normal albino bn there doing nothing oh and DOUG if you read this the mum is 1 i got of you

I'm very excited to hear about your fry!!

Endlers aren't suppose to munch on their own fry, so shouldn't the BN fry be too big by the time they are out?

I plan on having Endlers in my BN tank... Thought it would be a good combo, and pretty too.
In fact my Black Bar Endlers (from AdrainHD -here in the states) are arriving this week.

I have had Endlers with my BN's and they have never shown any interest in the BN fry and don't really predate on there own. There is also a theory that hormones given off by Endlers and Guppys while mating can help as a trigger for BN's

I plan to have my endlers in all my breeding tanks, they are fine with fry. Mollies shouldn't be too bad. I'd get rid of em just in case... And get more endlers Very Happy

ive raised these frogs from tadpoles green tree frogs i can get about $30 for them so a 4ft tank on stand light heater and filter is a good deal to me and saves me selling frogs to get money as tanks coming from my lfs 1 of his spares so a bit sad to see them go :cry:
