I FOUND A BABY!!!:):):)

Alright, I just turned my lights off and I was watching my snail... then I saw something swim past me and I thought maybe I was crazy, but then it happened again. It's definitely a baby. I haven't seen it since but I want to try and raise it... Not in the same tank though. I have two filters running on my 28 gallon, the one was from my ten gallon it was set up sometime in august... If I fill up my ten gallon again and put the filter in it would it be safe for fry like that day? I have no worries if there would be enough bacteria in the filter. But other then the filter everything in the ten gallon has been boiled and completely clean. Um the baby would be a swordtail if that matters. I really want to try and find it right now so someone reply plleeaaaseee!!!!

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

I would get a breeding tank. if you get a small tank with a filter it could get sucked up.

Um ok, but I don't have a breeding tank and I have a ten gallon right now on me that I could wrap sponge or something around the intake.. So yeah thats not really the problem. I need to know if it matters that the only bacteria I have will be in the filter... and the water will be completely new.. the gravel and decorations too. (Not new, but boiled)

Was the filter from a established aquarium with no problems? if so it would be perfectly safe. :D

Alright... I'm going to see if I can't find the fry again... Then I shall fill up the ten and see how it goes...

Wrap pantyhose or sponge on the filter intake if it is too strong enough to suck the fry. You can buy a sponge filter anytime to replace your current filter.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

That is true. you wouldn't want your fry to be sucked up. that would be terrible.

Lol sorry I guess I posted in the wrong place? I only posted in the maintaining thing because my question had more to do with the bacteria and starting up my ten gallon again more or so then the baby. But since I am in the breeding section now... I found the baby... Lol only one it's cute... But is there any point of keeping it in my ten gallon? I get the feeling I'll never see it again... How will it find food? a 10 gallon with just one fry? Seems crazy. I have a net but I don't know.. I just wanted to keep it in my ten gallon.
