| || | Unexpected Platy Fry. Am I doing this correctly?
I have a 20 gallon tank and I thought my Sunset Fire Wag Platy looked pregnant. BTW, I know nothing about raising fish. I did some research and found that the other fish would just end up eating the babies and I figured that was best as I already have
2 Rainbow Sharks
2 Zebra Danios
1 Glass Barb
1 Panda Catfish
1 Dojo Loach
And I didn't want to overload the tank but when I saw a tiny little fish hiding behind the plants I had to try to protect them. I put a divider in the tank and I have seen up to 8 babies at one time on the Fry side of the tank. I feed them the "Fry Food" I bought from the fish store and cyclopse. It's odd because some of the babies are half the size of the others. I've had them about 2-3 weeks and I don't really know how old they can be before pulling the divider out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
