    I am currently trying wean just one fry. It just ignores the ground up processed food. I added a male guppy in its tank, maybe the betta will copy the way it feeds. I hope it does.

    Hi OFL Ah Right I understand why But I'm not palnning on selling these endler X guppy anyway.

    I will forward pics of the new female once she arrives.

    Was going to try spawn, I have EVERYTHING Ready, But was going to let her settle in for a week or two first

    The way I wean my fry is to add dry processed food along with live foods and slowly decrease live and increase dry/processed over about a week-10 days until they are eating 100% processed food.....

    Hi! Its me again! Some of my fry already show coloring. How do wean them off from live food? They are the ones i just placed outside, copying your outside spawn set up. Actually there are just about 3 fry, as the rest died due to my inexperience. How do wean your fry into dry food?

    thanks for your helpful replies! :D

    It can be normal....especially when the fish is asymptomatic.....

    Okay. She's perfectly fine, colored up so nicely and loves exploring. I'll stop with the Prazi-Pro, then. So occasional whiteness/transparency in their droppings is normal?

    If she is otherwise acting and eating normal...I wouldn't worry...often what you see is related to the diet and with females it could be related to eggs she dropped and ate or even absorbed...this is all normal and nothing to worry about...I would not treat her with any pesticide/wormer unless she is symptomatic.....its normal for fish to have some internal parasites in the gut/intestines...they shed them on a regular bases to keep them in check and the immune response of healthy fish will do the rest......
