Re:I had Babies!!


Pete — thanks for your response. I was out early this morning and now have a brine shrimp hatchery set up in the tank, a sponge filter and so far only 1 death that I can tell. I also did a water change this morning while siphoning the bottom of the tank. The two adults that coupled up are a yellow and black H.B. It has been approximately 18 hours since birth . . . I am still finding babies in the main tank. I am giving small amounts of frzn baby brine shrimp in hopes that they will at least get something until the other hatch out — which hopefully will be by tomorrow. Can’t find anything live. While most of the babies are in the pelagic stage, there are some that have attached onto the hitching plant and are staying below. They move around when they see something in front of the tank. One question though . . . how do you regulate the temperature in the nursery tank? I know I can’t put a heater inside as it will burn them if they touch it. My temperature is only around 74 f. now. I turned on the light in hopes that it will have a bit of a warming effect. I hope I can save some of these little guys. They are truly amazing.
Thanks for your continued help.
