I just wanted to announce that my rams had actual babies without eating the eggs! I am just very excited and had to share.

congratulations!!! you know what that means?... you gotta move to ohio(or atleast visit) and let me know where you are!.. no, it doesn't...?
glad your fish got it right, and decided NOT to eat the eggs!(i bet there starving now!)
Congratulations! Blue rams are gorgeous fish! Please keep us posted on the progress of the fry.
Ok, so last time my 3 year old decided to feed the fish and dumped a whole bottle of flake food in the tank. It didn't take me too long to notice, but all my fry were gone when I did. I'm not sure if it was all the food or the parents got stressed and ate them.
Anyway, they just laid more eggs.
Hopefully we can get it right this time.
Any suggestions on food for the fry? Also, how long after they're freeswimming do I need to start feeding them?
