    10 is better than 6. Maybe you can count more next time.

    These are doing well still only count around 10 but they are growing well i think and the bigger fry are starting to bully the smaller fry!!

    Im still feeding them on micro worms.

    But the thing im finding funny is when the fry swim past the right side of the tank my females that are for sale are stacked next to the tank are going mad trying to get to them they watch them most of the time too.

    nat whats the white and yellow thing in the tank, pics on page 6?

    if that is def your standard grow out tank, consider substrate and plants too for next spawn, I bet you will have larger fry counts.

    pm me if you want to try it on a budget Wink
