PostSubject: first fry!!!   Sun May 22, 2011 5:00 pm

my pair of commons have had there first fry. i didn't think they would live because when i first seen the eggs they were out on the gravel so i figured either the female layed them there and the male didn't fertilize them or the male kicked em out of the cave then i thought well its there first batch so give them some time but when i looked in the tank this mornin there were a bunch of wigglers scattered all over the tank. cheers Very Happy Good Job

As I understand it, if both parents carry the albino gene then there is a chance of the odd albino fry. If only one parent has it then there will only be common fry.

Doug has made an excellent post about crosses HERE that will explain it better.

Fry are better left with parents for the first couple weeks to a month. They eat the parents poo which helps build there ammune system. At about 2cm is good to move into grow out tank. This is unless there's bigger predatory fish like cichlids in the parents tank that could eat the fry. Iv only ever used fry savers for fry that iv hatched in egg tumblers or to keep fish that I'm selling (makes em easier to catch when needed lol)

Kfenk has it in one. I ususally move male and eggs to the grow out tank, not just the eggs so that dad can still look after them. If they have already hatched in the breeding tank then i ususally wait til 1.5-2 cms to shift them

i have three batches out right now-had 4 but a pair of hungry guppies must have eaten 30-40 fry over the weekend as I missed
the chance to separate them, and those guppies have not bothered them before Sad

Depends on the size of the female. If its a small female then yes 20 sounds about right. Just be wary of the krib fry, even if they are too small to eat the bn they could still try. But good luck with the fry tho and hope the parents keep breeding for you cheers
