PostSubject: Safe to put platy fry & BN fry together?   Tue Jun 17, 2014 3:10 am

As the heading suggests, I was wondering if it's safe to put my platy fry in with my bristlenose fry? The Platies are only 3 & 4 days old and I have some bristlenose wrigglers (as of yesterday). I've had to move my BN's cave (wrigglers and dad) into a breeding net as one of my females got into the males cave and squished a few of my wrigglers   

In saying that, my platy fry are in a little "maternity" tank that attaches to the side of the fry saver net.. It's not big enough to keep the 19 of them that survived the parents, in for too much longer. + it's difficult to clean. The net is 30cm long & 10cm wide.

A lot of the eggs didn't make it because dad wasn't fanning properly and they grew fungus. There was still 6-10 okay eggs that had some eyes in them yesturday arvo but I don't know if they've made it. I have 7 wrigglers that were clearly visible. 

Water conditions are perfect. THank you!!! Very Happy
