    So a few months ago I successfully bred celestial pearl danios and had around 14 fry in a 2.5 gallon. They did well for a couple of weeks, but it was my first time trying to raise fry and I didn't really know what I was doing, so the fry didn't make it:(
    I felt really guilty and didn't want to try again just then, but recently I gave it another shot and I have fry now! There are around 8 from what I can count, and that's all I want for now until I can convert my 10 gallon tank into a fry tank. I also moved my amano shrimp in there just to help prevent over feeding, which was my mistake last time, but I am feeding a lot less now and if the shrimp isnt getting enough food I will dedicated feed it. I'm feeling pretty confident this time and I'm looking forward to raising the fry! I'll attach a picture of the tank as well as a contraption I made in around 10 minutes to allow me to do water changes without worrying about fry getting sucked up.

    Nice job! Congrats on the new batch of fry hope they work out for you this time :):)
    Edit: a turkey baster works well in fry tanks to spot remove any waste also. Just a thought. They're very cheap and have a lot of great uses!!
