No longer a quarintine tank UPDATES!!!

My new trio of Triple Red Cacatuoides have spawned in their quarintine tank, I guess there is no better place than that. They would have gotten the same accomodations in the breeding tank so now I have my fingers crossed that they don't have anything that will pass to the fry once they hatch, but just having spawned is a sign of great health.

I'll keep you in mind when they grow out.

Well the eggs were gone today, but it's to be expected. Still it is a very good sign, the females are a bit larger than the male so they won't take any of his crap until they are ready again.

When do you expect to move them out of the quarantine tank and into the 20 gallon you have for them?

I am moving them later today actually. So that they will be settled in before the next spawn, which should happen in the next week and a half as long as my experimental new diet for my apistos works. Otherwise it will probably be a few more weeks until I get another spawn.

Well seeing that I had updated this after the apparent server problems a couple of weeks ago I will try again.

I now have two week old free swimmers, and the female has laid another batch of eggs and has left fry care almost totally to the male, which is a first for me and very exciting. They will however be pulled this weekend and put into their grow-out. I forgot to mention that this is going on in my 55 gal which I had placed all of my Apistos while I divide the four other 55s that I have to house them. The female is protecting one third of the tank the male is in the middle and the other 16 are happily sharing one piece of driftwood in the last third. I know its not really right for them to be housed like this, but the cycles are over so they too get moved this weekend and my wife seems to be happier with three walls in one room lined with tanks instead of them being scattered everywhere.

I just wanted to say congrats on the fry. I know how much of an exciting time it is, but I also know how much work it takes to grow them out. Been there done that.

Best wishes to you.

Well it seems a little more experimenting with the diet of the fry is needed I added microworms to their diet which consisted of bbs and powdered food, and now I am showing greater losses at a higher rate than before. The food is the only thing I have changed, params are in the 'perfect' range with water changes of 10% every other day. I guess I should expect some set backs having been out of Apistos for a couple years. I am also probably going to switch to 5% water changes daily.
