Angelfish Fry & BBS Hatchery

We've been checking the eggs very carefully every day since they were laid. As of yesterday we can see their little eyes. Expect tomorrow, Sunday at the latest they should be free swimming. SOOO excited!!

Set up a baby brine hatchery several days ago, but don't think the first batch hatched. We fed what we thought hatched to the angel parents in order to keep them well fed and off the babies this time.

Tonight we're going to make some changes. Found a DIY set up and we'll be placing 2-litre bottle inside our guppy grow out tank to maintain temps for the hatchery. When we got the kit the instructions said to "maintain constant light". In researching BBS breeding I couldn't find this sort of instruction anywhere else and figured it was to maintain temps which seems logical. Has anyone heard of light playing a factor in hatching BBS?

Thanks! As it happens when i went home at lunch and checked on the fry (i was going to snap a few pics to post while i was at it) the parents had moved them from the leaf to.....eek the intake pipe! We didn't have the intake covered yet so I quickly grabbed hosery and covered it. I'll take some pics tonight and post them. Ironnically them being moved to the intake pipe is a much better angle for me to photograph now.

Yes it is! But, I go home for lunch every day, barring any lunch meetings or other things. With the three dogs at home I go home let them out and spend (and share when i eat) lunch with them. I'm really, really glad I checked on them too! who knows how many we lost from the time the parents moved them till i checked?

Oh, forgot, thank you for the comment on the lighting requirement. I haven't seen it anywhere but the instructions on the starter kit we bought either. I'm pleased with the DIY instructions I found and we're going to set that up tonight.
