    Well done on the fry  *grin*
    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.
    All the best

    Thanks everyone.

    Inside there’s at least 4 fry and I’m trying to feed liquify and scrapings of algae from the pond liner.

    Outside there could potentially be hundreds! Not sure whether to leave them in the little tub or try and transfer them to the larger plastic tub I have, but it’ll have no algae for them to feed on. Decisions decisions. All free swimming and zipping around.

    It’s been a week an a half and the inside wrigglers are looking great!

    I decided to transfer the outside fish into a bigger tub as there were so many. Not sure if this was the best idea as the larger area may make finding food more tricky. Still a good few zipping around outside though.

    Inside fish are growing much faster.



    This is a very poor pic of one of the bigger ones 2/3 days ago. Definitely looking like a small fish rather than ‘eyes with a tail’. One is even bigger than that now.

    The new fry tend to be about 8/9mm long and about 1mm thick/ deep. The largest one inside now is about 18mm long and 3/4mm deep (when full). Most indoor fish are happily eating Microworms now. Just started the outside ones on Microworms too (this may be a reason for growth variances as well as temperature).

    Very fast growth so far and I’m really excited to watch them change. I’ll try and get some better photos of the bigger ones soon, but 50% of the water is full of moss so there lots of places to hide!

    The adults in the pond seem to be doing well and have been spawning again for the last 3 days solid. I’m definitely not keeping anymore eggs, but nice to see and interesting to watch them chasing, dancing and splashing around the plants.

    Very happy I got into pond-life :)
