Baby Endlers.

I was just given 6 baby Endlers ranging in size from 1/2 - 3/4 in or so. I read that a good diet for them is veggie and meaty flakes as well as freeze-dried blood worms. I have them both but it seems as though the blood worms will be to big for them to eat. Should I wait until they get bigger to feed them blood worms? About when will they start to color up? I'd like to know how many of what sex I have?

10g - Red Cherry Shirmp
20g long - SE Asia "Biotope"
30g - Jasper's (GF) Tank
75g - South American "Biotope"
Plenty of empties...

Hi Stoke. You sound stoked. I raise hundreds of endlers for my local F S. Thye are pretty much vegetarians but some protein helps them grow faster. This is what I feed the couple hundred I have. I make a crushed mix with a rolling pin of 1 part carnivore sinking pellets and 4 parts Hikari sinking Algae wafers. I also give them fresh hatched brine shrimp one day a week and blanched spinach or beet tops. My fry are mature in 9 weeks with this diet. It is also important to keep the water CLEAN. I do 75% changes each week. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. They are happily eating Tropical Flakes as we speak but would like to give your recipe a try. About how long does it take the Endlers to mature enough to reporduce? I have a larger female with a brown area behind the stomach. Any ideas?

Stoke. From new born to giving birth to there own is only about 3 months. Just a single female can have about 20 young every 29 days even with out a female around. They are able to store sperm packets from a single mating and us them for the next two or three birthing cycles. You shpuld have many new friends soon. Have Fun.

I couldn't find them for the longest time in my area either. Now that I have found them they're in every LFS. The basic colored Endlers are used as feeders around here. Mine aren't producing babies as much as I'd like. I don't know if there are getting eat as soon as they are released or what.

Well, maybe they'll start selling them around here soon too. I've never even seen one except in pictures!
