Oryzias woworae fry! YAY!
I just wanted to share that I have some fry from my Oryzias woworae (AKA Daisy's Ricefish, Sulawesi Ricefish). :mrgreen:
I found the fry yesterday, though I don't know how long they've been in there because the Hornwort is a pretty thick jungle on one side. lol I'm not usually awake/coherent in the mornings, so I hadn't noticed my lone female carrying eggs. But this morning I made a point to look and, yes, she's toting around some eggs on her pelvic fins!
So, I just kinda wanted to share :mrgreen: but I also wanted to make known my set up/parameters for anyone else wanting to breed these fish.
set up 2.4.12 w/ bioseed and plants (so no cycle)
5 males , 1 female (young adults) added 2.4
1 male (baby) added 2.18
Hydro Spong II
pH 7.4 (8.4 out of the tap, drops to 7.4 within 24 hours)
temp 78F (was at 75F for the first 2 weeks or so)
Ammonia and Nitrite = always 0ppm
Nitrate = 5ppm or less
weekly 50% water change with tap water
(water changes more frequently now that there are fry)
food: crushed Omega One Super Color Pellets, crushed Omega One Super Veggie Flakes, Omega One Frozen Daphnia
Thanks for looking!
