There are fry in the tank!!!!!

NEW DEVELOPMENT !!!!!!!! :)


FRY!!!

I saw two just now as I was doing my pwc. What thrill to see this. They were scampering around in the plants. I must have flushed them out while I was pruning and removing dead plants stuff.

NOW WHAT!?

They are well along in their development. They are small, but too big to be newly born.

HOW DO I DEAL WITH THIS?! I would really like for them to survive.

Also, they seem to be orange in color. Could they be Platy? I thought I had two males. Any link to a sight were I can see what Molly fry look like?

Congrats. Livebearer fry are the colour of the adults (black molly fry are black, red platy fry are red...) although colour patterns as in guppies are not detectable for a while. They will find refuge in plants, especially fine leaved (wisteria, cabomba, etc) especially if floating. When you feed flake food, crush up some of the flakes. If you can get them up to the surface in floating plants, it will be very easy to feed them.

Today's TANK readings:

PH: 7.6
Amonnia: 0
Nitrite: 0

NITRATE: .5

Also, here is a link to the type of fry I saw at the bottom of the plant scampering around. I am shocked! I would never guess these were platy!

Quick Update....

My two Platy Fry, as hard as I tried to save them, were eaten! DAMN!! Very disappointing!!

My tank has cycled. Very happy with this. No casualties through out this process. Thanks to all that have helped.

I will be moving the fish to a 50g tank in the coming weeks.

Reading today....
PH: 7.6
Nitrates: 0
Nitrites: 0
Ammonia: 0


Very nice.

Thanks
