Sorry are your fry in a breeder net if so then an adult snail from the main tank will have gone in and laid eggs or the snail will hav just gone in on it's own

well i cant find the small snail and i put it in the breeders net to.the babies must have chewed it up! i put my bigggest fry in the tank and i have about 15 in there atm and they r swimming freely..2 of them(the biggest ones) have the gonopodiums and they r displaying a beautiful color!! i love it. one of them is stretching his gonopodium like hes trying to mate with the females.they dont even look at the females.they swim by each other.

i tried to test this out..i put he smallest fry i had in the tank and if it didnt get eaten i would take out the breeders net and let them all in.but if it did get eaten then i would keep the small fry in the net.sadly its getting chased alot so im not taking the chances.im not gonna take it out either cause thats minus one fry and i guess its better for my tank.

Aww I hope it survives! I really hope my fish give birth soon! I think they've been pregnant forever I swear! Oh the fish started "flashing" and I've gotten rid of the ammonia in my tank, and now I've noticed a little white spot on my female cremecycle mollly so I'm treating them all for ich now. Damn ich!
