They hatch in straight RO water. I let the fry eat off the parents for about two weeks, then I start introducing hatched b/s. I keep this up for about another two weeks, and then it seems that the parents start stressing from the fry eating the slime coat
, so I separate them. While they are with the parents, I start to alter the water and put tap water in as a replacement due to the minerals needed in the water for growth. I don't really know how long to keep up with the hatched b/s. When I move them into their own tank, they are basically placed in straight tap water. The death rate seems to be a couple per day, and then after several days, the death rate slows and then stops, but this leaves very few fry left. When they are in a tank of their own, I start introducing shaved beef heart, and some crushed tetra bits. I also introduce shaved Formula One, in the cubes. There it is, what do you think? Thanks for the reply!
