    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......

    Hey OFL,

    Wondering if you can help me (again. lol)
    I'm usually good at identifying parasites, but right now I'm stumped/worried. (Excuse the endless babbling in advance!)
    Right... so Amaryllis' poop had a little white thread on it, and the regular stuff was at the bottom... and I'm not sure, but there might've been some white attached to the regular stuff too, but it wasn't stringy at all. I fed her frozen bloodworms earlier, so that might be why, and I'm using Prazi-Pro, which helps prevent/treat tapeworm-like parasites, but I'm still really paranoid... what do you think? She's very happy, very active, eats like a pig, and ready to breed... hasn't shown signs of tapeworms before, either... but I can't help but wonder.

    As you found out they can breed and the reason you don't want to cross is so the endlers can stay pure...

    She sounds pretty...look forward to pics.....are you planning a spawn?

    With Endlers-they usually start to color up in the 4-8 week range...some sooner and some later....however, since you crossed them with guppies.....which is not could be sooner that they color up....hard to say....
