    Hi guys I got a great surprise this morning my I found that my white clouds have had fry. There currently tiny and behind my artificial back ground. I am a bit worried as I have a male sword tale who might eat them if they come out any advice? Thx

    You can remove the background, scoop them out, and put them in about a 3-5 gallon tank, but that is a little bit of work.

    You can also just add more hiding spots if you don't want them to be eaten. This increases the fry chance of survival. Also, minnows, especially white clouds, breed like year round and very often, so don't be worried if some fry go missing. They will replace them in the matter of days!

    Hi thanks for replying I think I will purchase a breeder net then just to keep them safe as I only have spotted 3 fry so I don’t want to lose any as my white cloudes have never had fry before :)

    Ok, that can work too.
