    Default Apistogramma cacatuoides fry

    After trying to let the parents raise their own, I took matters into my own hands.... doing well.

    Here they are at two weeks.

    No, the parents weren't just all the neighbors. That's what neighbors are for....eating the babies. I just found it easier to grab the whole cave without mama and put in into this hatchery. after the eggs hatched I dumped them out of the cave and put the cave back in the tank. Then just waited a few days while they used up their egg sack, then just started the bbs 3 to 4 times a day.

    they are growing like crazy.

    has worked very well. I have no idea what to do with so many apistos.

    In another week or so, I'll move them into a 5.5g tank and keep feeding them. They are now the size of guppy fry.

    If I had the tank space I know where you could send some! I've always liked apistos.
