PostSubject: New To BN Fry   Thu Dec 10, 2009 3:38 pm

As I said in my intro we are trying to raise our own BN. We breed fancy goldies but know nothing of BN. We got a breeding trio and now have fry, lots of fry. I was cleaning out the tank this morning and turned over one rock and found a zillion of the little things..Smile and that was only one rock. I'm not sure how to classify these BN. I bought them as Albino Long Finned Ancistrus...... does that make them L144? The L144 I found a sample pic of were not long finned.
Male is still hanging out by the slate that is leaning up against the side of the aquarium where he hatched this batch so maybe the females (2) arent done laying eggs. Think I'd better make him a cave.. Smile Here are some pix I took this morning of the fry:

High BruceP, that's quite a few little ABN you'll need more tanks soon enough.
What colour are the eyes of the parents - red=common sp3 Ancistrus, black blue eyes= L144.
cheers J

J... thanx....... I checked this morning and they have red eyes so I guess they are just commoms. Is that a bad thing or just less desirable than the L144?
The quantity you see in the pic is only what was under one rock. I didnt check but that one. Not to worry about having enough tanks. We have several that arent set up that we could use if need be, up to 120g. Could also throw some in the thousand gallon tank once they are big enough not to get sucked up by the filtration.. lol

I would defo set up another tank for growing your fry out in.....
And make a few cave's like you said..
I would also not change anything atol as you seem to have the condition's spot on....To be honest in the world of bN's L144 are more sought after but i had a chance to buy either L144's or common albino's and i opted for the common's....the only diff is the eye colour and thats it so not much differance really and your only talking a few quid more for L144's if that....

I like common's the best and would buy common's over L144's any day!! but thats just my view on things...........

Anywayz keep up the good work and post some pics of the adult's when you get a chance...... cheers
