Well, they are still alive Parents take them out to one part of the tank by mid day, and I saw a few nibbling at a moss ball. In the evening, when lights go out, they move them to the back corner of the tank. I've been feeding live brine, but killed all of my second batch - this is a learning curve! So, hoping my next batch will hatch tonight, so I can feed them before I go off to work. I've fed them the frozen bbs, but I can't tell if they are eating it or not. The parents nip like crazy at the syringe I put near them to feed them. I guess they still haven't figured out I'm trying to feed their young, since I don't think they are capable. LOL!
If they are still around tomorrow, than they've made it past the time the first fry lived, before they were eaten.
Next on the agenda is finding a cheap 20 gal long tank, to one day put the fry in, or use a 30 gal I have sitting around. It's more tall than long, which I don't like, but it's already here :)
