I have 2 month old butterfly telescope fry. Some are developing well, others I just had to see what they will be. Anyway, I'm struggling at what depth their water should be kept. Sometimes I read 12-18" but that had to be for much bigger fish. Something I read said 1" water for every centimeter of fish. That's just too little, even if I include the tail length. I'm just lost. I moved the bigger ones into a 20L and filled it up a touch higher than what they had (about five inches), and it seems like soooo much for the smaller ones in there. Like I said, I'm kind of lost here. I want them to have as much water as they can, but I would also like to give them the best chance to grow those tails out nicely..... and I will admit, changing anything is hard for me with these little things.. i do recall waiting months to fill up the tank that my first two grew in. This is my biggest one - two are just a touch smaller (sorry these pictures are so huge) and this about is the size of the other three If you have any advice for me, with the water depth or otherwise, I would really appreciate it!
