    Not even a month with my new orandas and I wake up 3 days ago to find a pair spawning and laying eggs EVERYWHERE. (I have no spawning mops, was not planning to breed)

    I was letting nature take it's course cuz they were stuck all over the glass of my barebottom tank. Finally today when I saw that most of the eggs where white and easy to remove, I swipped my tank with a facecloth,...only to notices some wiggly fertalized eggs that weren't eaten and now attached to my cloth! I emmediatly placed a breeder holding tank in my aquarium and was able to find about 20 eggs. Not too late after they hatched!

    I know it's not much, but I have brine shrimp eggs, golden pearls, frozen foods, sponge filters and a 20gal tank sitting around. I want to try to raise them.

    Can anyone give me fry care informaion? I'm doing some research but would love words from someone who has done it :)

    Here are the parents:

    Mother Obi

    Father Chewy

    Finely crushed flake will work after they become freeswimming. They don't eat before that. Clean water is the number 1 need at this stage.

    Make sure the tank they are going into is cycled, or they could die.
    Good luck

    Babies are still in the parents tank in a breeder tank (they are not free swimming yet). Their 5 and 20gal tank is running as we speak with sponge and HOB filters (HOB is in the 20 for when they are big and strong enough) from established tanks :)

    I've got baby brine shrimp that should hatch tommorow or the next morning, grounded algae/veggie flakes and brine shrimp flakes. And 300 micron golden pearls for food :)

    Frozen brine shrimp and gell foods for when they are older. And then when they can, they will be on the same feeding schedule as the adults :) pellets, bloodworms and gell foods.
