Depends on how good your vision is...sheeshshe said:so, how hard is it to spot baby fish anyways? trying to figure out if any of the socolofi's have survived or not.
I definitely agree. Many of the mothers I've had held close to 4 weeks, and I've yet to lose a female to starvation. Worse come to worse, she may decide to eat the young.chapman76 said:24 days is quite normal. They typically don't spit until 28+ days IME.
Also, most (vast majority) of the moms will spit the fry before starving to death. To be on the safe side, if you see her getting dangerously thin, I would strip her.
