I definitely have fry in my new 5 gallon planted tank! Help! We are complete newcomers to fish-keeping, but we'd love to try and see if we can get any of these little guys to survive. First off, I have no idea what type of fish they are. My best guess is the eggs came in on a plant. The Corydorus habrosus have only been in there 3 days, so that doesn't seem like enough time for it to be their offspring. So here are my questions:
Would the Corydorus habrosus eat the fry?
Should I move either the fry or Corydorus habrosus to another tank?
The filter I am using seems way too strong for the fry (and probably for the Corys too). In a newly set up well-planted 5 gallon do I need to have a filter running? Can I slow the flow? It is an AquaTech 5-15.
The temperature of the tank is right about 73 degrees. Should I adjust it?
Sorry for so many questions, but I'd love to see a few of these guys survive.
