    Thanks :)

    @pgoodsell I've tried about a year to raise them and kept killing them. Then this last month as I'm tearing tanks down I am now mastering how to raise them LOL. The key is the Marina hob box which I just purchased. Without that I probably still wouldn't have any babies. It also helps that I now have empty tanks.

    I find it takes a lot of time. Have to feed them 3 times a day and do water changes after each feeding. Also takes lots of tank space lol. I have the 3 spawns each in their own tank and I'm out of tanks with more spawns getting ready to go free swimming. Unfortunately I have to let nature take it's course again with the last spawn.

    That is awesome, what are you feeding the fry? Have you tried to gut load brine shrimp?
