Re:Raising ponies … without a special tank



I woke this morning to the same problem you had. At first I thougt it was food swimming in the tank…. I was like, :woohoo: OMG where did all that come from… my water! My water!! I just wanted to start to net the access when I noticed they were babies. I read your post and remember the "air" advice….

I took a small cup and caught the most, the rest I used the turkey baster method. I know I probably have null chance of getting any through, but I thought I’d at least try to give them the best possible chance I could give them and that was down below. I have so much calupra and other algea growing there. Some did slip through and they went on a roller coaster ride through the pump and right back up to the main tank…

Hardly little bastards…. :blink:

I gave up putting them below and thought, you guys are on your own…..

I was surprised, the fish did not eat them at all. I have a maroon clown, damsel fire fish and yellow Gobies. I was sure one of them would go after them. They did go after them but than noticed it wasn’t food and actually left them alone.

I fed the seahorses and sometimes young would swim by, I thought for sure the seahorse would mistake the young for food, buy they were very careful and did not eat their own young.

I hope you have more luck in at least getting one or so through. It would be totally cool if you did.
