    Removing Fry from parents?

    I would leave them in the tank with the parents, the fry grow like frozen molasses. I have never breed more than one pair in the tank at the same time, with macmasteri, hongsli and borellii when the female is ready to lay again they always eat the fry unless I remove the male. Good luck and let...

    Cacatuoides Fry Instructions

    Mine [Macs.] dont seem to like the cyclops, but they do love [live and frozen] mosquito larva, with ground shrimp pellets and powdered flake food to transition them over to flake food, I have two batches that are about 12 weeks old and there little pigs if it goes in the tank they try to eat it.

    Top tip for encouraging new dwarf cichlids to feed

    I had the same problem with a batch of Cacs. I just received, the best thing I found that works is live mosquito larva, after about a week I put some in today and they went crazy trying to get them all.

    Moving bonded panduro to another tank

    If the silicone is wearing/coming off are you going to reseal the tank? About the male, I must not have seen the first post about the 5 spawns.

    Cacatuoides Fry Instructions

    So right now there still feeding on the yoke sack, if you dont have any brine shrimp eggs to hatch now would be a good time to get some, I normally start feeding live baby brine shrimp at about 3-4 days they might not be able to eat it yet but it's there for them every day until they can...

    Female in hiding too long?

    I've had Hongs. stay in the cave 11 days before ever seeing her and the fry, I would give a few more days, like Mike said get your BBS started and let some gently flow into the briars. Good luck
