9th Spawn

Post by jerry58 » Sun Oct 18, 2009 10:14 am

Hi
They spawned on the 12th and as planned I removed the eggs on the 4th day which was Friday night all went well.
Put them in the breeder and by Saturday night they had started to hatch all went well only one was dead at the end.
This is a good result as other previous spawns have not been good results last one zero fry!.
Which brings me to believe he is killing them when wrigglers as good result this time.
I put this on here in the hope it may help others at a later date that might have the same sort of problem.
Got a way to go yet but will give update. 8)

Jerrry :D

Hi
First of all Thanks to Joby,Stevie.K,Frontyking,John and ZebKeeper for your kind replies.
Just an update,glad to report all baby zebs doing fine and eating well they are due to go in the small grow on tank this weekend all being well.
Alpha male doing well back to (friendly) fighting the females off and enjoying himself. I think all of them were trying to get in the cave the other night but he an't having nothing of it. :lol:
He has them under control now.

Thanks again.

Jerry
