My RCS that I brought on the 10th May just gave birth this morning.
The seller is kind enough to sell me one female that is full of eggs.
I can see the tiny replica of it hiding beneath the driftwood.

I have no idea whether they will survive, I do not have micro food for the baby RCS.

Let nature take it course I guess.

The babies will pick at your plants and substrate just like the adults, as far as I know, so there's nothing special to feed them like you would with fry.

I can't wait for my RCS to mature and have babies. I got lucky enough that the two that didn't die are male and female. Hopefully they can find each other in the tank and do the deed so I don't have to buy any more.

Latest Update, the babies are all doing well.
I have about 30 of them, I am not sure whether there was a second birth by another female as some were smaller. (most probably those that got less food)

It is a good investment for me as they are easy to take care of.
Will be adding the babies with the guppy when they are older.

Like to get something like Bee or the or the crystal red which are more prominent in look next time.

Latest update:

My first batch that was borned on the 15th May and 2 of them has start to become berried mama on the 17th and 19th July.

So, basically it will take around 2 months for your first born to become berried mama.
Might be longer for those with lower temperature.
