I just recently got anubias. They seem to be doing fine (which considering they are my first plants, don't receive a ton of light, and no fertilizers) I usually feed the babies crushed flakes but you could feed them some cooked egg yolk or some other high protein food. I would suggest some microforms or baby brine shrimp or something but I'm not sure how the fry would react to it.

I ran out of it a week ago..but Hikari sells product called "First Bites". It comes in a little packet for a couple or so dollars..I think it is a good all around for very young fry. But using just flake and golden pearls this week. And the company"Lotsofish" who is a fish retailer sells product "#2 mix" that works very well.

I will look into those for sure. And egg yolk? Really? I guess babies of all kinds need their protein. lol I have noticed my most oregnant female (who was so fat she could barely swim) has squared off and her gravid spot isnt as black anymore, but I havent found any babies. Does that mean she had them and they got eaten or is she going to pop now? Still learning sorry :)
I found a great site online that sells tons of aquarium plants you cant get in the stores im looking at getting quite a few for my 55 gallon and even getting a couple more for my 10 gallon. Lots of the Anubias and quite a bit of Crystalwort Moss to attach to my rocks and driftwood. I have a green thumb anyway so I guess thats why Im so into this haha.

My guess is she is just close to giving birth. I've noticed most of the time with my females who get really big, they will all of a sudden slim down either a little or a lot and I'll find a few babies. So just keep an eye out. I've had a couple who got really big and squared off and just when I didn't think they could get any bigger they did.

Haha. Don't worry, if you don't get many this time you'll definitely get some next month. I've only been getting one or two per female per month and trust me, it adds up.

Haha yeah it's definitely addictive. I'm hoping to get another tank but truthfully I just don't have enough room in my bedroom for more than like 5 gallon.
