Theres lil guppies hiding in the tank

Post  chiclidlover on Wed Mar 05, 2014 10:19 am

I recently got some guppies from ramas about two weeks ago noticed I didn't see the large black tailed female guppy so with careful inspection of the tank I notice some small white objects swimming around the java fern with a closer look it was ten lil guppys happily playing with each other. As I turned my attention to the slate I had layed put the sunset Molly had her fry hiding behind it. It look like twenty lil swimmers now I gotta locate my Molly female she was inspecting also for a twenty nine tank the find some crafty places to hide lol I have some floating plants an wood hate to disturb that area the java fern has started to grow in that area. Guess my sliver minow an comet gold fish thinks there home has turned into nursery.guess I'll get some java moss an diy lawn on the gravel give them a playground to play in. I'll leave them in with the community tank let nature take it's course my will to prevent an protect might gender proper growth They have a lot of places to hide an play away from the adults guess that's why my two cory cats moved an wouldn't clean that section

I've been feeding the oscars a jelled pink salmon an sweet potatoe with one crushed iron an calcium pill. I originally got it from DIY from bing. Figured baby fish why not baby food which is organic no preservatives an packed with vitamins. Cons just make sure you whip it with an fork no blender to much air will make it float. Over feeding will cloud your water for a day but w/c will clear that up. Pros it's cheaper then fry food an it helps digestion tracks my oscars loves it. My sunset an beunos love it I call it super grow food cause all my fish have double in size even the guppies

I like the process plus you can use flint stone vitamins also I would recommend once aday but they use cornstarch as a bases this binds fish digestion tracks but for angel fry I would use clam juice brine shrimp ( bloodworms are good to) an green pea baby food with some vitamins iron,calcium.. An when mixing use tank water instead of tap water helps keep nitrates down food sinks every time
