Fry growth spurt!

Attachment 55209



Attachment 55210

Mixed fry...

Dalmatian fry-- 3 wks, 6 days old

Dalmatian fry-- 2 wks, 3 days old

Creamsicle Lyretail fry-- 1 wk, 6 days old


My first batches of fry 1st time around... Saved 35, 30 & 15... Not sure if we have the same amount still... Could have lost a few and been eaten overnight by other babies...
Water 80 deg, fed crushed flakes every 4-6 hrs

Looks good! Yeah, people who raise livebearers for sale usually need a series of grow-out tanks since the moms just keep pumping fry out.

I didn't intend to raise them for sale until one pregnant female led to two, three, four once I researched mollies... Lol
