Fish Babies!!
 
Hi everybody,

I have recently noticed that I have a few baby fish in my tank (aprox. 100+). I think they are from my Gouramis although not sure if they area hybrid or not. Anyway as most of the fish are surviving I don't know what to do with the babies... So any ideas?

Thanks

Maybe your LFS will buy some off of you and give you a credit. Usually they have to be a certain size but give them a call. Would love to see a pic of your tank and babies! I have a very pregnant Pineapple Swordtail and am waiting anxiously for results. I would be much happier with only 3-4 not 100+!!
I once took an "entire family" of ciclids, "Rusties" to the LFS and got more than $20 for the load. Many sizes in the bucket! They would all hide under the rocks together and the tank looked empty all the time except when you fed them. I think a breeding tank is a healthy tank! Good job. It is a fine line sometimes.
