sunset platy fry temp?
 
my sinset platy just gave birth! i have 12 fry.. in a separate fry tank off the side of the main tank. What should the temperature be for the platy fry? any suggestions? thanks

The same temperature as their mommies tank. The important part is that a heater is in it so that the little guys won't get stressed. I have heard the notion of a slightly warmer tank but I don't think its that big of deal...

Go Fry! :arrow:

Warm temperature allows the fry to grow quickly as their metabolism is increased but this also ages them quickly quite unfortunately.
