What can I do to facilitate my fry survive?
I recently found (actually my friend's mom pointed it out to me) 1 baby Dalmation Molly in my 8-gallon bi-Orb fish cistern. I have 1 platy and the mother molly in there. I get the molly a few days ago and it must have been pregnant from the store. It wasn't too plumped but it was acting unusual, often pointing straight up as if it were "standing" and must own given birth one night and I didn't notice any fry. I've heard that platys and mollies enjoy a tendency to eat their newborn babies so that must have happen to the others. That one that I found looks too big for the others to eat now but it is small enough to be impossible to fish out! Luckily, mollies savour algae so the baby has been nibble stuff off of the sides of the tank. But is that enough? What can I do to relief it survive??
The best item you can do is provide it with a place to hide (they sell fry bed at pet stores) and allow nature to take its course. They eat what they can find and appear to do well, but truthfully, a single fry's chances aren't that great.
belive surrounded by ALAH!
If what you said is true and you can't fish out the baby,them it is best to take out the other fish and put them in a separate reservoir. If you don't have another tank to put them in next try to buy some plants, rocks or ornaments that it can hide under.
If there is adequate algae then that should be fine for it to eat, but if here isn't try to crush up normal fish food into minuscule portions for it to eat (definitely don't buy that liquid for fry because it is a short time ago a waste of money and makes your fish tank cloudy).
Even after adjectives the precautions it could still die. Fry are just so fragile that some just don't survive.
I hope i all works out for you :)
I wouldn't bother going to gain that Liqui-Fry store at the pet store. It fouls the water terribly as people tend to over nurture baby fish.
You might want to stop at the pet store and get a few bunches of Anacharis/Elodea, Cabomba or Hornwort plant. Baby molly can nibble on that as economically as hide in it.
Eventually, you can feed the babe-in-arms some crushed up flake food. (*TINY* amounts, ok??)
Best of luck!
