I have microworms so I hope they hatch! Good luck to you too!

Well I guess I have magical fry?
Started with about eighty eggs. I maybe squished 5, 10 got fungus and were removed
I saw four hatch two days ago, counted four both days, but magically all the eggs have disappeared into thin water.
However, I checked this afternoon and have ten fry. So six more came from nowhere and about 50+ went where? Only one popped out of the breeder trap and it has to be a slim chance of that happening. Where did all my babies go?

First bites is wicked, you don't need to feed them for 3 days after hatching the egg sack will keep them fed after 3 days it will have dissolved

Day four and I still have nine left. I saw one escape through a hole and get munched by a tetra. The tetras are now hanging out under the breeder smacking their faces into it when the fry move.

I have seven guys left, a few died. But, on a light note, 38 more hatched overnight and there are still more eggs to go! I guess I did a better job than the first time! More than tripled my hatch rate with less eggs
When can I put the two batches together? I know the bigger guys will probably steal most of the food at this stage but maybe three weeks?
Bren how are your wee ones?

Hey mine are doing well. I alternate between microworms and first bites. I have 7 or 8 fry and just got another small batch of eggs waiting to hatch.
