Hi, so I am going to be setting up a 10 gallon tank for my 15 guppy fry, and for future births ;]
So I have a few questions:
They are 4 days old now and in a breeding net in the main tank, how old should they be when I move them to the 10g, or does it matter if they're young? I was thinking that they might be sensitive when switching tanks all of a sudden, but maybe not?
Should I use a regular filter and put netting around the suction part, or should I use a sponge filter?
Is it best to have the tank bare bottom, or should I put in sand/plants?
PS: Not sure if anyone knows, but I bought a couple live plants from the pet store awhile ago. I found tons of eggs on them, and assumed they were snail eggs, so I plucked them off, and left the plants in a little tank for a couple days. Then, I put the plants in my main tank.
Well, a week ago I found 3 little baby fish swimming around in the tank I had the plants in before. (I hadn't emptied it yet, haha)
I remember at the pet store that there were koi and maybe another species of fish in with the plants that could have laid the eggs.
These 3 little guys are TINY though. They are maybe 1/4 the size of the newborn guppy fry :S Does anyone know what kind of fish have babies that small?
Also, right now they just have one piece to their body, no other little fins or anything.
Thank you for any help!
