Recommended Posts

Hey all,

My JAGs laid on Sunday night n the eggs hatched last night (Tuesday). How long should I leave the wrigglers with the parents b4 movie them into a fry tank? I'd preferably want to move them b4 they are free swimming.

Any advice will b appreciated

Hey Tim

Great too see they have bred already for you,nice and quick.

Get some hose and siphon them out now.

Leave a small amount there for the parents to play with otherwise they could turn aggressive to each other if you take the lot.

Just a tip when using a hose to siphon out fry. Get a lighter or match and heat the end of the pipe, this will remove the sharp cut edge and make it more rounded and fry friendly.

cheers

Hey All,

I syphoned out bout 300-400 fry leaving the parents approx 100 fry to nurse. Might try to catch some more once they are free swimming.

Thanks for all the help :egrin:
