HI everyone I've lurked around for a while and was hoping some one could advise me on my wigglers. I spawned two firemouths they laid on the 5th of this month I moved what I could on the 9th to a breeder box (this is cause of the two Juvie BN that are in the same tank) by this time they were wrigglers.
Basically I have a tank set up ready to go perviously housed corys. Can I move the wigglers to the tank only thing in there is snails il add a pic all the chemistry is the same but the tank temp is 24-24.4 and the tank they spawned in is 25.4. Thanks in advance

That would be perfect for your wigglers. Just make sure there is no filter intake for them to be Su ked into. Also take some water from the main tank and add it to the fry tank. Good luck!

I normally fill my fry tank with water from the parent tank that way they don't go into shock, I'm about to do the same thing with about 30 or so krib fry hatched 13 days ago, if you think your wires look bad you should see mine.
On the intake for the filter I cover it with a piece of pantyhose I barrow/swipe from the wife.

Ok unexpected situation I added the firemouth fry and all have been looking good but this morning something caught my eye a larger fry zooming along the back of the tank after further inspection seems to be a peppered cory (it was their tank before hand) it is a bit bigger than the cichlid fry. Basically will the cichlid fry be ok in there with the cory fry?
