You are doing fine. Be careful not to overfeed. You can foul the water and water fouling is not a good thing. After athe fry are free swimming, I would move (or remove all other possible predators) to a rearing tank. a 10 gallon would be fine. (another excuse to get another tank.) Then maybe get a 15-20 gallon grow out tank a little later. Keep the temp constant and watch water pH. Try to keep as constant as possible. Great job!!!!!!!!

the fish are in a species only tank i cannot get another due to "words" i had with my landlord the other fish in the tank do not show any malice towards the young the two females even seem to be sharing thre broods with each other i may have to get rid of my julies to give them a larger tank the babies are now on brine shrimp and newly hatched gnat larvea some are stripey while others gold

there seems to be about 14 they all shoot into the shell when i try and photograph them
