good day to all and thanks for reading. I will try and make my question as simple as possible. to start off, i have a 10 gallon tank that i take good care of (i keep it tidy, theres only real true aquatic plants, no plastic ones) and is pretty healthy. in the tank i have 4 glofish 2m 2f, a small pleco, small cory, and three guppys. also about 4 small ghost shrimp. I also have a little 2.5 gallon setup that i have had running for a couple weeks now that i was holding ghost shrimp in to let them grow a little before putting in lrg tank so they wouldnt get eaten. So my dilemma is both my female glofish, one yellow one pink, keep laying eggs in this little castle. the first time this happened i got a small plastic breeder container that floated in the tank. i used my gravity vacuum to syphon the eggs out of castle and into the breeder. but once they hatched they were small enough to swim out of the sides of the container and swim into main tank and be eaten. the second time i found eggs i set up my old 2.5g tank with water out of my 10g tank, syphoned the eggs in and tried to give crushed dry food. they died shortly after. the third time it happened i syphoned them again out of castle into small tank and went to the lfs. the guy there sold me a bottle of Kent Marine Zooplex, zooplankton. i got an oral syringe and started to adminaster small amounts of it right on the one healthy fry i saw. it lived for a couple days before dying. he got big enough where i could definitely see pink on or in him. so i figure i over fed and fouled the water again.
so its happened once again. one of my little fishers layed eggs and were def fertilized again. i syphoned them up again from there little hiding spot under the castle and put them in 2.5g tank. this time the tank had been running awhile. its got a small airstone in it and a small filter set on low and i buried the bottom of the filter where the inlet for the water with rocks to try and prevent them from getting sucked up. Also, i just recently learned that i should be using aqurium salt in my tanks. i have since gotten it, and used it per the instructions (maybe that was partly to blame?). So please help me. what do i need to do to make these little guys live. I have a little time as theyre still inside their little eggs. ive done a lot of searching and ive read a lot about the different foods, i.e. egg yolks. but how much, how often??? should i try the zooplex again? im using a syringe, how many cc's are we talking for 2.5 tank a day and how often? please help me help them!
and if i can get them to stay alive with your alls help ill certainly post picks of there progress. also as theyre not suppose to breed it would be cool to see what comes forth. the guy at lfs thinks ill end up with regular danios. will see hopefully! thanks for reading this far and any and all help is greatly appreciated!!!
