Bn Catfish Fry!

6 posts in this topic

Posted

Noticed that one of our BN catfish in the community tank has been hidding for the last week. Curiosity finally got the better of me and I just move the container and sure enough there were fry. :scared: I counted 6. We have not even been trying to breed them and have been treating the tank for an inflection. :cheer: Will be interesting to see how long they last.

Congratulations. :lol: I find BNs breed at weird moments, too. Hope some survive the terrors of a community tank for you. :lol:

bristlenose have large spawns so i would assume most of your fry have been eaten already, if you do want to save more next time , i would move the pot if he breeds in it to another tank or fry saver, the male bristlenose does all the fathering of the fry , anyway congratulations on your fry, careful they cant get sucked up into your filters, i had that happen once when i first started out cheers Sarah

They are in a 4ft tank that contains 8 betta females that are going to be re-housed shortly. We were going to place different fish in there but have decided to leave it for the BN and see what happens. :) So what a few more fry, who's counting between the bettas, guppies, mollies, swords, platys and BN. :) The oscar is the only one I know will not have fry.

I smiled when I read that you're treating the tank for an inflection :) This is exciting. I remember when my severums 'accidentally' spawned for the 4th or 5th time and I siphoned out the babies and raised them myself, to prevent their getting eaten (as had all the previous spawns). It was fun to watch a different species from bettas growing up :)
