Lindsey P Posted October 15, 2022 Share Posted October 15, 2022 I apologize in advance for the long post. I just want to be thorough. Any tips are appreciated! I am a new hobbyist. I set up my first tank about a year ago and since then have set up five more. Last week I collected somewhere around twenty of my angelfish eggs after the parents had a couple failed attempts at hatching and raising their own. I watched several videos so I felt fairly comfortable trying to hatch them myself. I put the eggs in a Tupperware bowl and floated it in my tank with an air stone and a few stem plant clippings. I ordered methylene blue but it didn’t arrive in time, so I removed bad eggs as soon as I saw them. Right now I have about six wrigglers and one free swimming fry, and I have been putting in Hikari First bites and micro worms in for the one. I made a small water change siphon with airline tubing and a pipette, and change out water 1-2 times a day. I’m having trouble feeding such a small amount to just one fry. I try to feed it 3-4 times a day like suggested online. My question is, could I put a small piece of a fine filter pad to help catch some of the extra stuff floating in the water? I’m worried a baby might get stuck in it so that’s why I haven’t tried it yet. My goal is not to become a master breeder and rear hundreds of babies or anything. I just wanted to try to raise a few for the extra knowledge and experience. Thanks! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
