Re: Fry in Planted Tanks
Stephen, I have a thirty gallon tank with 8 "Columbian
Red Tail" tetras. I originally got 5, and in time had
ten adults. Three more juveniles have recently
apeared. Two full grown specimens have since died;
one disappeared during remodeling, and another jumped
out and was likely eaten by my dog (for real). Mine
survived even with a pair of Steatocranus tinanti in
there (RAVENOUS!). It helps if you feed the little
guys with a quality turkey baster (there are plenty of
not so durable ones out there) if you can't move them
to a safer temporary home. Have you ever looked at a
water sample from your tank under magnification?
There's plenty of microscopic life in there for them.
I really enjoyed watching a pair of kribensis raise a
family in my tank awhile back. Cool stuff.
Those diamond tetras don't have a reputation as easy
breeders either. Be proud of your accomplishment!
