Keep trying. Put a small amount of crushed flakes in there with the live food each time. That should help them wean off the live food a bit. Yours are a little younger than mine and mine just started eating something other than BBS this weekend. And probably because their older sibling, Charming, is living with them and they all followed his lead! LOLYeh I just tried that. They certainly perked up and could tell there was food in there but a vast a majority of it is just on the bottom of the tank!
I know, he's the runt of the pack too! He's going to be a little cutie for sureThe white one with the black face in your second photo is Adorable! So good to hear an update!
I have 8-9 remaining so still more than enoughBummer!!! I'm sorry to hear that! How many do you think you have now?
Mine are currently in a 20 gallon with a lot of filtration (I have sponges on the intakes just to be safe). But I still do small water changes every 2-3 days.....and I FINALLY took down the bbs hatchery! I am so tired of that thing!
I plan to move them to the 46 gallon this weekend!! I can't wait to see them "stretch their legs" !!
ya...another 4-5 days without a water change after they had 7-8 days without a water change during your vacation likely caused this one to die. BUT....you still have a great number, that's true! I would stick with daily water changes though until you get a little more filtration in there.
Not yet! Give me a few days and il get some for youya...another 4-5 days without a water change after they had 7-8 days without a water change during your vacation likely caused this one to die. BUT....you still have a great number, that's true! I would stick with daily water changes though until you get a little more filtration in there.
Any new pics for me?!
I've just seen the videos they're adorable! And also significantly bigger then mine. I'll try and get some photos today
I haven't tried liquid fry food. But I would think as far along as they are, you should be past the need for liquid food. But I don't know!I've just seen the videos they're adorable! And also significantly bigger then mine. I'll try and get some photos today
I still have 8 or so left alive and have been doing water changes every couple of days to get hem over the post holiday stress. They're just adorable little things so happy I put in the effort of getting them to this stage!! Still trying to get them on to flake food as will make life so much easier
How about feeding liquid fry food at this stage? Reckon I'll have any luck with that?
On a side note my filter in my main community tank packed in yesterday! Luckily once I took it apart and gave everything a good clean and spin it started working again
oh boooo! I am sorry you lost one of your fry!Well I came home today and everything seems to have gone wrong, no idea why! Found one dead fry, and all my microworm cultures (3 of them) seem to have stopped producing!! This means I have literally no food for my poor fish.
I have two types of food that I can crush and feed, so I'll give these a go and see if they take a liking to either. I pray that they do as it's the only option right now

I have no eggs leftoh boooo! I am sorry you lost one of your fry!
I don't know anything about the worm cultures...so I have no idea what went wrong there. Could you throw together a shrimp hatchery again really quick? Mine hatch in less than 24 hours as long as I keep the water in the hatchery very very warm. I have never taken the actual temp....but I am sure it is pushing 90 degrees!! It is such a small hatchery and then it has a 40W lamp shining on it 24/7!
Your babies can't be too far behind mine....so I know they are CAPABLE of eating bigger fish food.....but the question is....will they?! Maybe if they get hungry enough! They did manage to survive without much food while you were gone for a week....so maybe they will be ok. Just crumble up the flakes really small for them....If they get hungry enough hopefully they will eat them!
I'm crossing my fingers for ya! I hope that at the VERY LEAST you have a sole survivor to raise and enjoy!I have no eggs left
It's harsh, but my only option is to keep with the flake food and cross my fingers that they take to flake food. I mixed the two foods I have and mashed with a rolling pin in a sandwich bag! It's nice and small now, I hope they do eat
