New fry, can they survive in a fish bowl?
I have new fry which I think came from a white molly. I put them in a fsh bowl with water from the aquarium. Can they survive in this, and if not, any suggestions? I have about 20.
well, make sure to do lots of water changes. they can survive temporarily, but theres most likely no heater in there, and you really will want a cycled filter. I suggest a breeder net or box that can float in your current tank :D
my tank doesnt have a heater and all my fry r doing fine,
Fry or any live bearer don't need heaters to survive.They just prevent infections from happening faster or at all.
You should read the pond section under unfiltered tub ponds. A couple of us are in the process of making these setups with just water and an established bacterial community.
No heater , no filter , fewer water changes .. . .regular food.
It is apparent that these live bearers breed better in this environment. No fatalities have been reported yet.
Take a look at this article on a FILTERED CONTAINER POND
We always forget that these fish, when in the right environment can survive through generations!
They still have their hardy gene in them. It never gets erased!
They will be fine in a bucket of water. Maybe just put a plant in to filter out the nasties.
PS. Why don't you start your own unfiltered tub pond in your backyard?
All you need in a 10gal bucket, water, substrate and java moss/pennywort/hornwort (floating plants) and not forgetting the fish. You can test them on your culls or any guppy you don't like. Remember to cycle the bucket with filter juice!!!!
