Well they spawned today, when I came home the eggs were already partially covered with sand, just move some 2 month old platys out of a 10 gallon and going to throw the eggs in there. I have a small water pump acting as a power head to hopefully act as the female fanning the eggs. We'll see what happens, at this point I will be happy to just have a couple make it to free swimming.

How exciting! I hope they continue to grow successfully. Can't wait to see pictures of them. I am sure that pretty soon your breeding pair will be going for round two. What are your plans for the babies? Does your fish store buy them from you?

I've never asked them but I need to, since its such a small spawn I will probably grow them all the way out to sexual maturity which is about 4 or 5 months away.

But they are still wiggling on the bottom so I'm pretty hopeful, been researching brine shrimp and decapsulation, another couple of days and these guys will be hungry.

Well free swimming began today so things are looking up, about 3 or 4 of them are wandering the water, and a good number are still trying to make flight, just started my brine shrimp so hopefully will have some ready in 24 hours or so.
