Zebra Danio Fry - assistance please
Hi, first post so go easy.
Ok i just moved my fish from the 10g into the cycled 30g tank this afternoon. The move went well, and everyone seemed happy. My Danios were the first ones in there. 4 females and 2 males.
I nip out to play football for an hour, and when i got home, i looked in the tank and some tiny movement in the corner caught my eye. They were on the back wall of the tank in the still water below the filter outlet.
Anyhow, i try and focus on it, and it looks like 3 tiny eyelashes. So i think that i have got some Danio fry. Its hard to see as the lights are off but i then notice some stuck to the front wall of the tank.
i counted 17 in total. anyhow, i grabbed my phone to find out what i should do with them, i dont have a breeding trap or anything else like that at the moment. i wasnt expecting babies.
by the time i got organised, my swordtail is slowing picking them off like sweets (bare in mind they have not been fed all day).
i managed to get 2 fry out of the tank, and put them in the now empty 10g tank (which i had left on to maintain the cycle whilst i decide what to do)
question is, what should i do now?
im assuming i will need to get some fry food in the morning, but any other tips you can give me whilst im away browsing the forums would be appreciated.
