    Default Success at last! My original batch.

    Well I did it! Success at last. My original pair that was thought to be 2 females. My 5.5 inch King Flora and a 4 inch red melon male. About 40 to 50 fry. They are now 15 days old from attachment to Mom.. I removed the 4 inch male after 2 days cause the fought and they never attach to him 2 tops.

    3 days ago when I feed the mom beefheart something amazing happened! Almost all started going crazy for the beefheart and today they seem to be all eating it. They also still eat the brine shrimp and 1st bits.

    It it normally ok for them to eat the beefheart?

    They will graze off any of the foods you feed the parents. More so if the parents arent making alot of slime. That they are eating is awesome. .. Now you can feed them well and be sure to do lots of water changes.

    With all the breeding you are doing you are going to be swimming in fry soon! I see more tanks in your future!

    Ya I feed the Mom beefheart and the baby fry go nuts! I can't believe these little guys are eating it big part! I hope they don't chock! Lol. Now my yellow pair are getting ready to hatch there eggs! They also where very successful there 1st try last time. Problem is they fought too much. I will remove one of them problem is which on. One is the coward. Always afraid and it the biggest. The other small felmale is strong and always starts the fights. Which one??? Probably doesn't matter. Lol
