    Oh, wow, I am sorta like a polar opposite in that lol. I've experimented in jumping for a while, and my one mare looks AMAZING in english, but really stuck to western, and barrels.

    English, spent most of my life riding Hunter/Jumpers but recently started dressage, it's much easier on my back, and a lot of fun too

    Lol, yeah, because a ammonia or nitrate/nitrite spike would be BAD.

    Sounds like my mare Ruby! Had her a while as well. Do you ride western or english?

    Yeah frequent small changes are much safer and more effective then less frequent large changes. Patience really is a viture! :)

    That horse is Liberty, I've had him since I was 10, he's a big pain in the butt and I love him like crazy!

    it's fine, life gets busy!
    Okay, I know my adults get stressed during larger water changes, so it would seem to be better to wait longer. I have an airstone going in there to make sure the water doesn't film over, and siphon out the uneaten foods, and normally go a once over on the bottom of the tank, would that suffice until they can have a larger w/c? I would hate to kill them! D:

    Okay, I wouldn't want them to possible choke or have the water go bad, so I could definitely wait, paitence is a virtue!

    Thank you so much! Also, I love your horse in your profile picture!
    He/She reminds me of my first horse, in a way.

    Hey sorry it took so long to get back to you!! I wouldn't recommend doing such a big water change while they're still so young! It's much better to do daily small water changes then one huge one. Betta fry stress really really easily, and doing such a huge water change is likely stress and possibly kill some of them!

    As for "dry" foods, at about 2 months old you can start feeding frozen brine shrimp and frozen cut up blood worms. As for pellets, they're usually not big enough to eat them until at least 3 months old.

    Hey, since you seem really knowledgeable about raising spawns, and since this is my first spawn, I have a question or two for you.

    Since they are a month old and 5 days old, do you think I could do a large water change, if not drain 90% of their tank? The water is clean, but I would like it to be a lot cleaner.

    Also, when do you think I can introduce "dry" foods?
