My boyfriends 10 gallon tank has one male ADF and 2 long finned zebra danios.
It is undergoing cycling and today the ammonia was sky high. We were looking at the fish and I saw little tiny black things and I was like... "JACOB!!! TADPOLES!!!" I only thought they were tadpoles because I researched ADFs when he got them and the website said their fry are little tiny black things. But now I realized they are in fact long finned zebra danio fry.
Anyway, there is a butt load in his tank and I couldn't get them out. But we did a water change today and he never emptied the last bucket so I took a water bottle, poured half the water out and filled the rest with tank water and spooned out about 8 or 10 little guys into the bottle to take home.
We know the tadpoles in the tank will be eaten but we are hoping to save the few I took home. I put them in a 1 liter tank(filled with the water I had them in and my betta fish's tank water). No heater, no filter, there is a air bubbler though. I also put a live plant in there and natural gravel.
I'm not going to be able to go into town until Saturday and I have no idea what to do!
What do I feed them? I have frozen blood worms, betta flakes and pellets and frog and tadpole pellets.. but these little guys are so tiny do they sorta filter feed at this stage in life? I really want them to survive any help would be great. Thank you!!!
