 Fishes  can  generally  go  w/o  food  for  1-2  days  even  after  consuming  their  york  sacs.    Feed  many  times  a  day  in  little  quantities.    because  generally  most  of  the  fishes  tend  to  eat  a  lot  more  when  they  are  juvs  than  being  adults.    This  also  helps  them  keep  track  of  their  fast  growth  rates.
 Well,  a  momma  should  know  when  the  babies  will  feel  hungry!    :wink:

 WCs,  20-30%  every  2-3  days  would  be  fine.

 I  have  only  2  survivors  out  of  the  5,  Rama.  But,  I  am  learning  so  much  each  day.  
 
 I  would  like  to  know  something,  though.  When  I  had  Betta  fry,  I  was  adviced  not  to  change  the  water  at  all  till  they  were  older.  However,  for  my  Cory  fry,  I  was  asked  to  do  frequent  water  changes.  Why  is  this  so?

 Hi  Jen,  :lol:  
 
 Glad  to  know  that  2  survived.  May  the  lord  bless  them  with  a  long  and  happy  life!!!!!
 
 Regarding  WC's  the  wise  men  in  IAH  know  better.  I  feel  it  is  something  which  we  all  learn  by  trial  and  error  and  with  guidance  from  the  wise  men/women.  :lol:    :lol:    :lol:  
 
 Personally,  i  feel  this  is  because  water  quality  is  not  the  same  everywhere  nor  the  way  we  handle  our  fishes.    :wink:  
 
 Regards,
 Rama

 Hey  Rama!  Very Happy  
 
 I'm  sorry,  but  I  don't  buy  that  theory.    :wink:  Any  other  theory  that  is  far  more  convincing  ?

 Generally  corries  breed  when  there  are  rains  and  hence  reducing  temp  triggers  corrie  breeding.    So  when  there  are  rain,  water  is  fast  flowing  rich  in  oxygen  almost  0  in  nitrates.    Also  fry  are  not  tolerant  to  hi-nitrates.    That  is  why  wcs  are  recomended  for  cory  fries.

 Madhu  is  absolutely  right.
 
 Below  is  a  proceedure  that  works  well  for  me  with  artificially  hatched  fry;
 
 For  upto  2  weeks  post  hatching,  I  add  a  small  volume  of  water  to  the  tank  each  day,  without  removing  any  (initially,  my  fry  tanks  only  have  about  2"  of  water)...after  that,  I  do  10-50%  W/C  every  other  day.

 Oh  wow!  Cool  explanations.  These  water  changes  are  so  tricky.  For  my  fry,  I  use  a  length  of  airline  tubing  to  siphon  out  the  water  into  a  container.  That  way  I  get  to  remove  all  the  dirt  on  the  tank  bottom,  and  also  check  the  container  in  case  any  of  my  fry  get  siphoned  out  too.

 If  the  fry  tank  is  large  enough,  you  can  use  a  normal  siphon  with  a  fine  pore,  plastic  shower  head  attached  to  the  business  end...this  will  suck  up  dirt  while  keeping  fry  out.  For  small  tanks,  airline  tubing  is  best.

 Retro,  
 
 My  fry  tanks  are  quite  small.  But  I  hate  it  when  I  land  up  with  a  mouthful  of  dirty  tank  water  while  starting  the  siphon!!  <<Yukky>>  Rolling Eyes  This  used  to  happen  often  initially.  Now  am  very  wary  and  use  longer  airline  tubing  so  that  I  can  follow  the  path  of  water.
 
 I  also  have  one  of  those  kerosene  siphons.  But,  it  is  difficult  to  use.  You  need  a  whole  lot  of  brute  strength  for  that.  I  bought  it  for  my  Betta  bowls  as  the  siphon-end  of  my  regular  aquarium  siphon  was  too  large.  But  I  just  found  it  easier  to  tip  the  fish  out,  clean  the  bowl  and  put  it  back  in.  Razz  Some  things  just  never  get  any  easier.  LOL

 Hi  Jenny
 
 Try  this,  One  end  of  the  airline  tube,  use  a  Air  control  Valve  and  shut  the  valve,then  pore  the  water  through  the  other  end,and  just  place  the  water  filled  end  into  the
 Tank,then  open  the  Aircontrol  Valve  the  Siphoning  strarts.
 Other  Tip  is,  use  a  Net  that  fit  into  your  Tank,draw  the  water  from  the  inside  of  the  net,  these  I  found  out  when  I  was  Raising  Angel  Fry  in  Transperent  White  5  Liter  Buckets.
 
 Regards
 Sundar

 Thanks,  Sundar!  That  should  work  fine.  Will  try  it  tomorrow  when  I  do  my  water  change.  The  net  idea  also  sounds  cool.
