My fry army is doing well. I saw one of them died this morning but everyone seems very healthy so far. Here is my fry tank I set up yesterday.
The reason I have another small breeding box in the fry tank is, I have 2-3 weeks old – 4 platinum mickey mouse platy. They’re just a little bit bigger.. than the new-born fry so you might think it is weird to have a safe box for 4 of them. But, actually it is for my rest of little ones.
I made a terrible mistake the other day. I put new-born fry into the same place where those 4 bullies were. As soon as the little one started swimming they attacked her/he and little one died in 1 min. It was very shocking scene and sadly, I couldn’t really catch that little creature when she/he was in trouble so she/he ended up dying because of my fault and 4 ignorant bullies. I bet they thought it was a food or something! Ever since then, I try not to care for them too much because of that incident but after all, they’re.. fishes.. So I am trying to move on. Hehe! :p Sounds so silly…
So, I still need to have a breeding box to prevent innocent fry dying. Too bad for 4 bullies though. They need to live there for a while unless I have a bigger tank and I can keep them there.
Here we are, let me introduce you the 4 Bullies!
I am going to record a video of them eating food tomorrow. They’re mean to their younger siblings but… still cute!! 🙂
As you can see, my red mickey mouse platies are doing so well. They’re swimming here and there. They even sit on the sponge part of my filter! Those are lazy ones I bet.. “I’m a fish but I don’t care, I want to sit.”
Until another pregnancy party going, I got nothing to do with them except feeding them and watching them. It’s going to be a boring month but I am so excited to see them grow! 🙂
