Now an avid fan of my gorgeous bristlenoses..i now am the proud owner of bn fry tons to be exact ..ohh soo cute as well ..
i have 2 very handsome males boris and morris (who has more bristles)both have their own tanks shared with community fish..after deciding to get them a girlie each ,to be honest i didnt think theyd bred well in a comunity tank so wasnt expecting much just thought it'd be nice have a pair ..
brought 2 juvi girls from a friend 1 for each boy i thought ....well 1 tank was hit with the dreaded whitespot c(ame off neons from lfs)..so meant both girls added to morris's tank (lucky him)
added girls 19th sept ..morris gets jiggy straight away that day humm
20th sept morris is hanging upside down in cave/rock
24th sept hes still not come away not even for food ..so shine torch spot big cluster of eggs..
4th october awoke to the flutter of little fins all over the tank
9th oct head count of whats in view and can see 30+ nearing 40 baby fry ..
but tons in filter,vents,bogwood,behind backing dec,back of tank you name it so theres definatly more..
but i cant work out the age of them as nothing figures out ..guessing eggs were there before 24th i hadnt thought to check as thought too soon ,also guessing babies dont venture out 1st day born so unsure how old
can anyone work out a rough age of the fry from eggs hatching = ?
