    All the greys have died apart from one small one growing verly slowly, not all the reds have had the lock jaw but the biggest fry that had started to colour up a bit on the fins and tail also got lock jaw and died yesterday Sad

    Iv been feeding them the culture worms and banana worms which i wouldnt think would be too big to eat not tried them with the brine shrimp eggs as yet as some only come up to take a breath then back down.

    Also 99% of the babies are just staying on the bottom only the odd few are swimming about up and down the tank.

    I have had problems with the fine stringy slimy algae on the sides of the tank which iv been removing with a clean paint brush.

    Iv noticed also that i have 1 red fry with a slight kink in its tail but is managing fine swimming about.

    I read most of the things you said on different internet pages also but wondered if anyone knew anything different thanks Kel Very Happy

    thats good news atleast! Very Happy

    the ventrals often look further back that you'd expect them to be due to those fat tums!!

    Looks like i have 3 strong big fry at the moment, but my main problem was trying to keep the fry off the floor and i think iv found a way.

    I bought some cherry shrimp and since then the fry move round alot keeping out the shrimps way when they are cleaning up!

    Iv noticed that more of the smaller fry have started swimming around more which is good as they wouldve sat around on the bottom all day.

    Even my last grey baby is looking good altho still quite small!

    Also my algae problem has been reduced changed my lighting and cleaned the algae away, there's none growing on the sides of the tank like before, it looks so much better!

    Il get photos of the strong fry as soon as iv got a minute to myself!

    I have to say this little orpan is the only one that looks strong enough to survive!

    The others look so small that the babes from my 2nd spawn are catching up in growth

    Need abit of advise, as this little one is getting a little bigger now is there anyother foods i can offer, iv tried the decaps but seems to eat them and spit it out straight away! Fussy monkey!! When can i try flake food or is that not enough protein for the baby to grow?

    I also wondered how big should Kink be by now as it doesnt seem to be as big as what iv looked up on the web?

    how old is it??
    from what i learnt,the babies need alot of proteins to grow,so live food is good,you should feed them flakes only when they are bigger,i think =DD

    thats what i thought, the siblings are so much smaller that the SDxHM spawn i did a month later are catching up fast in growth.

    I feed them 3 times a day.
