Hi there, it's been a while since I have been on here!

I recently have had my zebra danios spawn successfully! I quarantined about 10 gallons of my 30 gallon long during my weekly water change last week. I have tons of larvae and eggs still but all the free swimming babies are M.I.A....are they hiding or did they slip through the cracks and get eaten....lol! Anyways I did see one free swimming yesterday about the length of an eyelash! So fast!!!! LOL If anyone is able to give advice I would appreciate it!!

No advice, but I've got about 100 Black Moor eggs is a nursery tank. Day 2 and wondering how long it took yours to hatch?

I do know that when feeding them, don't feed too much or they'll eat themselves to death. There's some fry food out there, or crush flakes into dust. Guess I did have some advice lol.

Good luck and hopefully you'll get better info, I'll be following.

I have Hikari First Bites. I feed them a pinch in the morning and in the evening. I have baby grass, rocks/cave and a plant in there and I have no idea how many are in there. I think I may be over feeding them then....IDK

Not sure of the bubbler, but I can't see it hurting as long as its not stirring things up too much. I have my extra filter going and keeping heat about 74-76 and my 6700K 17w light on the tank.

Your water levels seem OK to me. Do you think the fry are dying off?

Give me a few, I have some info Jsoong sent about this in a PM.

I don't know if they are dying off or getting into the other side of the tank. I have a pleco, 4 cory cats, 3 white tetras, 5 cardinal tetras, 4 bleeding heart tetras, and 5 zebras (4m 1f)
I noticed i tiny gap on the side of the partition...they can definitely squeeze through.....
