I'm a Fool for April

Post by TwoTankAmin » Mon Apr 01, 2013 4:24 pm

Last night while I was working cleaning tanks into the wee hours I discovered two sets of fry in my wc breeder tanks. These are the first ones I have gotten since Nov. 2010. I spotted fry of two different sizes, so I know two spawns were involved.

I am still grinning this morning.

Thats a great suprise TTA, especially after such a long break.
Always a nicer suprise when you had no idea they have spawned, which I have experianced before.
Long may it continue :cheers:

It looks like they may be back in form. I have pretty much had either eggs or wigglers most of the time since they restarted. I really need to get some fish out of the tank but I would prefer not to have to do so with anything but almost free swimmers in a cave. I learned my lesson when I lost 2 of the spawns in my one and only tripple spawn because I moved the cave to traps during a fry hunt.

I have no clue how many fry I would find. The potential is that there will be 4 or 5 spawns. I don't see the tiny fry much and its my fault for designing the setup to be this way. I supposes it is also possible to find few or no fry because they were lost, eaten or not healthy for some reason. Arghhhhh- I hate not knowing.
