    Cacatuoides Fry Instructions

    Hello! I have a pair of beautiful Cactuoides apistos that just hatched their second batch of fry. Last time their fry became free swimming, I had the two fish in a 29 gallon with dither pencil fish. I read on forums that the fry would be able to find food for themselves and that the mother...
