Default I have Baby Kribs

Well thanks for all the advice - it seems to have paid off. At 12.00 noon today I spotted babies with both mum and dad in attendance. I fed them some frozen baby brine shrimp - which dad ate most of and then again at 3.00 - which dad had most of.

I put a stocking over the fluval filter as it is very strong in this 72 litre tank - I was a little frightened that the distrubance would panic mum into snacking on them. But she was just picking them up and moving them elsewhere.

I have been putting the baby brine shimp in with a large kitchen baster in the hope of getting them near the fish but hey that is easier than it sounds. I also have cyclops and liquifry 2. I will give them some liquifry this evening.

Would I have to do small frequent water changes to maintain water quality. Good fun isn't it when something like this happens.

Are w/c the way to go or should I keep to the same regime of water changes. Also I'm sure that my parents aren't the first to eat everything in site that is meant for the babies. I expect some of them will get a share of the food at some stage.

Unfortunately, it looks like the new camera that will not be able to take any close ups of the babies without lots of fiddling with it. I have attended a camera course which has highlighted just how complicated this camera is. No wonder why most people just aim and shoot with them.
But I will practice.

Hi there,
I'm doing 10% w/c daily. Normally I do 25% fortnightly.
