    I use a airstone on some airline to syphon on water changes that way u suckin up no lil ones, i only did small canges over the 1st few weeks and kept testing the water on a regular basis,
    around 10% seemed to keep the levels pretty much on zero with carefull feeding but they will spike as the fry take on more food as things progress.
    Remember one thing even crystal clear water can be deadly as can a messy bottom sometimes be ok! TESTS are the key. Wink
    Good luck! it sounds like u doin a good job Very Happy

    You've got the right frame of mind hun... there's likely to be 3 times what you can see in there btw

    but even one to adult... how much are you gonna love him/her!!
    (storm get your ass into gear and find a heart pic for smilies!! lol)

    First spawn is all learning and experience, get a big spawn is a bonus, get atleast one to adult you know you'll get it sussed and have a very spoilt lil one!! Smile

    there's only so much you can learn from others especially when it's all online compared to watching, you have to figure what works for you and your setup, feeding regime, water conditions, time to dedicate etc. nevermind that all breeders will do things slightly diff once you go past the basic text book instructions.

    Aww the babies are so cute, for a first spawn a smaller number is much easier and i'm sure there's loads hiding!! My ct girls always used to be full of eggs like that, just be careful she doesn't get egg bound, i lost one through that Sad
