:(( sorry I'm too late and nobody answered!!! You need to seperate the babies from the mom and any other fish! They'll eat them! :(

hi thank you for replying .luckily your not to late. that same day i had purchased a breeding net. so last night i put the mom in there and she has six in there and two that ive seen on the outside. plus what i find so surprising that the first baby fish i spotted as i was doing my water change(so scarey) is about three times as big and fast as thosesweetlittle things. so senior member when do you think she had that one? well im off to tri city tropical to figure out some food for them. thank you agian.
