My 2 have just bred and I've got 40ish babies which are now all over the place! How old are yours now? Mine are only 12 days and left dads hideout at the weekend.

Plus I was just looking at what to feed them and found someones post about them dying, even at 3cm. You lost many?

What did you raise them on?

100?!?! More spawns?

I've been dropping in mini algae wafers and tried a bit of carrot last night. No-ones been overly interested in that though by the look of it.

Are they all in the same tank? If so, how badly do they impact the filter?

Plus have you lost many?

As bn grow/age the size of the spawns will increase. When I finally lost my female (after about 9 years of spawning) the last spawn they had was over 100 fry. Here she is

You can feed bn fry pretty much the same things you would feed the parents, just less.

try some courgette it seems to be a favorite for mine (parents and fry):)

i have moved some to a 60L but if i did keep them in the same tank my tank is over filtered so it should be ok ! :) its 1000 Lph and my tank is only a 110L !

i have lost in total nearly ten probably

Good luck !
