Lots of baby Honey Gouramis..

I noticed them this morning they are hidding in the water sprite I have floating at the top of the tank a few did swim out and were eaten by the male gourami so I moved him and the 2 peacock gudgeon to another tank I was going to move female gourami to but could not catch her. LOL I am going to make a divider this afternoon so hopefully they will be safe from her. There are lots of them and I hope they make it. Is feeding them really crushed up flake food enough or should I get them something else? I was not prepared for them but I am going to do my best to take care of them. I will find homes for some of them and keep a few and the rest I will trade to the LFS for store credit. They are in the 20 gallon long tank that I have that has lots of plants in it.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

I recommend feeding the fry newly hatched brine shrimp or liquid fry food. This also works well - Hikari First Bites at PETCO . For the few you're going to keep, I'd wait until they're 1/2 an inch long to put them back in the community.

Good luck!

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Thanks you guys. Teddy if you really want some when they get bigger I could mail you a couple when they get big enough if you pay the shipping.

Kindest Regards,

I'd actually take a couple from you when they get bigger. We can arrange it so that I pick them back on my next trip to the mountains (after they are big enough).

Any chance you can post some pics of the fry? I'd love to see them.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Ok NCFrank I will let you know when they are big enough. LOL Kimmie they are so tiny I can not get them to show up in the pictures. Maybe in a few weeks when they get a little bigger I can get them for you.

Amanda
