I would suggest moving them as soon as they hatch and start wiggling but before free swimming. Because if I'm not mistaken I think the antifungal stuff is only for during the egg stage... and they'll be much easier to move when they're still stuck to the Slate. And I moved one when it was wiggling but not swimming and he did fine in his new tank. Which had a sponge filter and daily water changes.MarkN1990 said:bizaliz3 Tolak
I'm slightly confused with a couple of small aspects here. I plan on buying a small 1-2 gallon jar to put the slate in (a vase) and running an air stone in this to make dosing methylene blue easier and cheaper.
At what stage would I take the slate out of this jar and put it into a hatching tank? When I see wriggles or when free swimming? If free swimming, how do I transfer them?
At what stage so I put a sponge filter in the tank? The meth blue will obviously kill any beneficial bacteria and it'll also need waste to feed on.
Once you move them into the tank you don't have the meth blue to worry about... I say get the Sponge Filter running on the tank before you even move them in there... just so it's ready to go
Tolak will be of more help. I don't think the baby tank ever really gets good bb because you'll be doing 50% water changes every single day...
EDIT and for the record, I just picked up my first bottle of meth blue and I am thinking about intervening on my next batch of eggs....It will be my first try raising them from the egg stage. I wonder if our angels will stay on schedule and lay their next batches at the same time
