I have 32 Platy fry in a breeder box. There is excess food and waste on the bottom of the breeder box. Could I put a snail in there with them?
Any snail will just add to the bioload. I'd siphon off the wastes instead. A breeder box is too small. Do you have a spare 10g tank?
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

In my view,breeder boxes should be used to hold fish for a matter of hours before releasing the fry into a grow out tank that is cycled and has been prepared in expectation of fry. It's what livebearer's do. Could be someting as small as five gal,with healthy biological filter(cycled) and plenty of floating plants either real, or artificial. I would feed the fry vegetable or algae based flake food ,that was crushed to almost a powder three or four times a day. At around four weeks, They should be large enough to not be viewed as food by adult fish.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
I agree a breeder box, is too small, get a 5 gallon tank, atleast...... I keep my fry in a breeder box for only like a day or two. Then if you moved them, then you could just throw away the watse. or you could just get a tank divider and divide your tank and give the fry some space
20 Gallon Community Tank
5 Gallon Guppy and Fry tank
SOON TO COME!!
A 55-75 gallon tank, hopefully
*Remember, its not how big a tank is, its how hard you worked on that small tank.
