  1. Hey guys, I just bought some Saulosi fry, they're about 4cm - most are light grey with some very faint barring, with faint shades of yellow and/or blue. Arent they meant to be bright yellow?? Or are these guys in a male transformation stage and will colour up soon?? Thanks Matt.

  8. Evening all. First off thanks for everyones help with my last thread in reguards to their eggs. Turns out some hatched but I have lost all of them bar 6 now in a fry saver. This time I'm more prepared & have been watching the pair closly. Her tube is comming down & looks like she is ready to lay soon again. My question this time is, if the fry survive will she pick off the 'blue' ones? Will she see them as being deformed & eat them to increase the chances of the others? Also, what is best to feed the fry? Any other pointers would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Craigo.
  9. 3 x 2 x 1 H partitions are all 150mm fry holding bays 450mm long The one long bay at the back is where the heater media and small powerhead will go. Hook it up to a pipe with holes (spraybar) to shoot water back in very well made tanks every edge is smooth. water trickles through stainless steel mesh not fly screen All comments welcome Fish junkie
  10. Was out and about today and saw these tubs and thought they'd be good for seperating new fry for the first part of they're life, before they go into a grow out tank. So now i have a task of building a timber rack to hold them all. They are 15 litres each. Cost a whoping $2.99 each so I lashed out and bought 12. I'm just going to drill holes in them and get some fittings to flow them back to my sump so that they all run off the same water as my tanks =) If it all goes well i might find some bigger to go with them. =)
  11. I have around 20 convict fry in a tank with mum and dad.

Should I remove the fry or are they ok with mum and dad? Adrian

  15. I have recently been trying to grow out a group of fry from about october, and they don't look like they are growing too fast. They are in a standard 4ft tank and are now about the 3cm mark, some smaller some bigger. Any ideas that would help increase the growth rate would be much appreciated. As in maybe a type of food to feed them? do they need a larger tank? Thank you in advance
  16. Hey guys, I never thought I would say this but I want to put Cichlids in my 3ft but How will they go in a 90x45x45cm tank with a few L's and Corydoras? The Corys are breeding and I was worried that the Elecs may eat the fry. Is a 90x45x45cm tank too big for electrics? Will they dig into substrate and how are they with plants?

  19. I recently put around 15+ peppermint fry into my tank with 2 electric yellows (the fry are about 8mm-1cm) If i am not feeding the yellows often and they are hungry, will they eat the fry? i can only see 2 out of the 15+ i put into the tank.

  22. I have around 30-40 convict fry free swimming but herded by mum and dad. I have a 2ft tank about to be setup for the fry. Whats the best way to get the fry to the other tank? Net? Vacuum? Adrian
  23. This is my first summer season breeding in Oz. To date, all my hatches have been successfully raised. My last two hatches of multispinosa had the parents removed after 1 week but over the following week, the fry gradually dwindled away on both occasions (they breed every 14 days). All paramaters are ok and older fry from the same parents are doing well. The temps in the fish room have risen to around 86F (30C) on a couple of occasions. Could this be the cause? Being so young they cannot withstand the raise twmps as opposed to their older siblings? cheers kev
  24. Emptied out my fry saver two days ago and found one left in it today. Would not have believed it if I had not seen it myself and my L066 spawn...now just to get the L002's and L202's out. L397 lives after two days in this much water in fry saver My latest spawn of L066's
  25. I've recently started keeping dwarf cichlids, in particular Blue Rams. They breed and I pulled my first batch of fry out about a week ago but have had trouble with feeding routines. Because they are so small, I have trouble cleaning out left over food without sucking out fry too. This leads to me having to find them and put them back in the tank one by one which takes about 30 mins 4 times a day! That's 2 hours per day just with fry feeding routines. Now they have layed eggs again! So I've come up with a plan and wanted to find out if anyone else feeds the way I plan too. The plan is to suck them out of thier tank into a "feeding container" so that the home tank stays clean and I dont have to worry about sucking out fry when cleaning. So I would put tank water in an ice cream container, suck them into it, feed them and then put them back into the home tank. At the end of each day I would refill the 15L that I've taken out during feedings so that takes care of water changes too. Has anyone else done this? Would love some advice, like: Does it stress the fry out moving them around so much? Any advice really would be appreciated. Cheers
