Eggs for the fist time!

Hi Guys! I'm panicking here a bit because my fish spawned today and I'm not sure what to do as I'm not prepared for that. I always wanted them to breed but not today! So, what I did, as soon as I spotted eggs I scooped as many as I possibly could out and put them in a small container that is floating on the surface in the same tank. I don't have any spare small tanks to put them in there so I guess if they hatch I will try to raise them in the main tank trying to separate them from parents. I have read many posts in breeding section but still it is so difficult to manage :)

Parents - He was after her all day and it still continues.

Eggs - there are many more than the ones visible on this picture.

Congratulations, how exciting! :) I'm no help with eggs since I found mine as hatched fry, but I'd get some baby brine shrimp eggs ordered right away if I were you, so that you'll be ready when they hatch. :)

Thank you for the info. I will do it right away! :)

That's awesome, Aneta. Congratulations! [emoji1]

I've heard great things about the Liquidfry. This product was recommended to me online a long time ago by an aquarist named Neale Monks, but I've never been able to find it. I think it may only be sold in the UK, since he's from there. The only fry food I've seen in shops here is First Bites, which is a dry powder that my fry didn't do very well with (their growth was very slow). It seems like liquid food or live BBS would be better. When I get fry next time (here's hoping! [emoji1] ), I'm going to try to make BBS again. That didn't work out too well last time, but I've been researching it and have a plan! [emoji4]

I think you can get Interpet Liquidfry on eBay and amazon. I do mixed diet which is Liquidfry and BBS and so far so good. No dead fry yet :)
