I thought my 1st summer tubbing attempt had failed to produce any Melanotaenia Praecox- Pagai fry despite being told they were “dead easy” to breed. I had an ammonia spike probably due to feeding bloodworms daily and I had to pull out the adults in an emergency evacuation situation. I had not been able to see any fry in weeks and previously only saw 2 freshly hatched swimmers. i was about to get a goldfish to occupy the tub when my friend looked carefully and spotted a couple fry! Later my dad suggested putting a piece of white plastic in there to help us see better. We did, and I was pleasantly surprised to learn I have a tub full of fry! I am super excited! But these tiny babies need to get growing before fall rolls around! Picture is of the parents.
