Instant? :o. Never heard of such a thing. Why are you telling me this now? :rofl3

I need to check that out. :o

:rofl

that was my reaction!

aparently, they're suspended in some kind of gel and you shake them up and drop a little in the tank... they're so tiny i'm not sure if they move around but the fry seemed to like them lol

just completed my first 100% waterchange- the two fry with malformed C-shaped spines passed away so at least i didn't have to cull them :blink:

did a complete head cound and i've got THIRTY fry !

.....a bit more than the original 9 :rofl3

Wow that's interesting, I've never heard of instant BBS before! I bet that stuff could really come in handy.

Haha I had a really hard time counting my fry when mine were still tiny! I now know that I have 18 though. I haven't gotten around to culling any of them yet though, so that number will probably go down a little bit eventually.

it's pretty awesome :D
the babies seem to like it and it's sooooo much less work than a hatchery lol
i got at it my lfs, but they sell it on dr foster and smith (and i'm pretty sure amazon)

I have been offering baby brine shrimp and hikari first bites 5 times a day (started yesterday)
took the babies out to change their water today and was thrilled to see tiny little tummies :D:heart
hoping to see some major growth in the coming days :happydance

I see tummys and swim bladders. :teehee

do they look like they're growing/developing normally to you Lisa?

:krazy:

i am so worried that they're not eating enough.....

cause the bbs are so small, and they're so small- i can't tell what's going on ! eeeeeeep
