I have him in a little bowl inside my fry tank because he is big enough where he could feed on the other fry literally 3 to 4 times the the size as the others ! Possibly even larger !


It's 430 am I started cleaning at 2 what the heck I spent alot of time saving these Guys!

Nope :/ I think he ate his brothers and sisters to get that big! I can clean the fry tank :/ I've tried 2 little filters I had 1 sponge and 1 tetra wisper air powered filter and I lost a couple of fry trying each I can't use the airline tubing because they go right through that! That's honestly how in caught the first few in my tank last night

For the most part they are attaching themselves to the bottom and sides of the tank?

Use apple/mystery snails for clean up. Also when sucking up waste drain it into a bucket. This way the fry that do get sucked can be put back in the tank

That's what I have been doing still crazy how much work it is to then get them back in. So I could get mystery snails? Will petsmart give me them for free? I put a shrimp in there but he was struggling to make a dent

No petsmart will not give it for free. I'm pretty sure that the min is $2 for each.
