- 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?
