Need advice on how much chasing is too much

Don't worry. It is normal for them to find a spot and stick to it for a while after they hatch.They will start swimming when they are ready.

Phew! I figured they'd stick to stuff but I just don't want them to be squashed.

Thanks Aubrey!!! Sometimes I think maybe it's not a good time, I'll have another chance etc but I can handle it! :nana:heart

When to feed BBC and how much?

Mom is back to normal? :)

Nope...........

She seems better than ever!! :o I guess since she's been in the tank it's been stressful and just plain... full, belly wise. She had been in there only five days before spawning began! :o She is so much more active than I thank I've seen from her. :)

I'm glad Chesty is feeling :happydance

You feed bbs several days after the fry hatch. They eat the yolk sac the first several days. If the fry are free swimming they are ready for bbs :)

But, it takes 12+ hrs to hatch the bbs so you may want to start getting supplies together :idont

Yes, my fry have the same, but I'd go to the store today. Mine only got bbs for about 10 days :idont

Okay, I will! I'm not sure if my store carries them but I'm sure I can find something, somewhere.

Tammy mentioned to me that I can feed repashy powder, but I only use Super Green so I'm not sure it would do a whole lot of good. Maybe grind some shrimp pellets into it haha. I'll call around and see what I can do :D

And thanks! :teehee

That's awful, Jenna! Happy fry-ing! :rofl

Haha, I can pick some up tonight! Maybe I was envisioning a usual trip, leaving with bags full of plants in my hands or something. I'll be able to pick some up tonight.

They have live BBS. :o I'm tempted, although, not so much because where do they come from?! But still tempted, because those suckers are a lot of work!

:rofl. It was a typo. No babies for me at this time. Some day I'll give it a go again but right now it's all too fresh in my memory. Too much work. I've got a lot of other things I need to focus on. :rofl3

I've seen eggs but the boys don't ever so their part. I will refrain from making any further comment. :tomuch:
