thanks, i'll bookmark that.

I cant help but think they probably thought I was feeding them, thinking of what that frozen brine shrimp looks like when I drop it in there, those babies had to look just like that. Oh well, lesson learned.

nope ; not true ; they didn't mistake the fry for the brine shrimp...it is quite common for the adults to eat the fry. sometimes they never learn to keep them..sometimes they do it right away..i never did much with letting the parents raise the fry..i usually hatched the eggs in a separate tank....
i always make sure that i have a good supply of fry food "BEFORE" the fish spawn....and fry need special foods....needs are not much different than most all other creatures....high protein and high fat...just like mother's milk...

I have a pair of rams that are teasing me with eggs every few weeks, but no fry yet. Next time I am going to try taking them. But if you can get the parents to raise them, it is so much less work and very cool to watch.

yea, i think I will take over next time. they did so well up until now. one or two of them were getting ready to take the leap of faith, so I guess they all did and went right into the parents' mouths

ok so lets try this again. After the last spawn, they didnt do anything else for a couple of months. I moved them back in the main tank and BOOM, eggs. They only lasted two days and every single one was eaten.

time to get another 10 gallon. this time I think i will try to raise them. I dont know why they stopped spawning in the 10 gallon i had. I have a discus in it right now.
