PostSubject: Why Fry Savers?   Wed Oct 26, 2011 4:04 pm

Hi all, I've noticed many people remove wrigglers and put them in a fry saver. What's the advantage of doing this over leaving the wrigglers with the male? Just curious.
Thanks!

Ideally it always better to keep the fry with the male and are it's believed that they can get beneficial bacteria from the faeces of the male.

Sometimes members have BN's spawn in a community tank or where there are tankmates that could eat very young fry or possibly injure them, the fry can be kept in fry savers, in the absence of another tank, untill they are less vulnerable.

I think the main reason for using fry savers is that there are occasions when viable eggs can be kicked out or dislodged from the cave. Young males sometimes take a couple of spawns before they get into the swing of caring for the eggs. Often placing the eggs in a fry saver with some aeration will result in the eggs hatching.

what he said +2 Smile

I frequently move dad, cave and fry to a grow out tank until all the fry come out of the cave.Then dad goes back into the main tank. Dads less stressed and the fry have a chance to get some special attention. Smile

I have noticed this morning that a couple of fry that still have most of there egg sack have escaped. Will they do fine by themselves or is this the time to use the fry saver. And at what time can i move dad and wrigglers to grow out tank?
