how long do I have to keep my mollie fry in the breeder net? I love the babies but I just hate this big balky looking thing hanging on the side of my tank.
They need to be big enough that the other aquarium inhabitants cannot eat them. Frozen baby brine shrimp can increase their growth rate. They will hide effectively in dense floating plants.
you should keep them in there for about 2-3 months
they should be big enough then
i would think the more room they have the faster they should grow and like johnarthur said make sure they ant big enough that the tank mates cant fit them in there mouths are some will go missing
oh, sorry I was confused you should probably keep them in there for about 4 to 6 months depending on the fish>.<
I have platys and mollies and they do great in it for about 4 to 5 months!
Are you serious?
We had 10 new babies last night.
You may want to float a large raft of fast growing, bushy plants like hornwort. A dense group will provide a fry refuge to replace the net trap, and it will contain some microorganisms for the fry to eat. In addition, fast growing plants improve water quality by ingesting toxic nitrogen compounds.
You have to keep them in breeder net till 2-3 months or till they had became larger enough from the size of the other fish's mouth.Otherwise you can keep them in a seperate tank.
