The same temperature as their mommies tank. The important part is that a heater is in it so that the little guys won't get stressed. I have heard the notion of a slightly warmer tank but I don't think its that big of deal...

Go Fry!

Warm temperature allows the fry to grow quickly as their metabolism is increased but this also ages them quickly quite unfortunately.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I think about it every night and day!
