These are my fry in my ten gallon tank. I have an Emerald Green Cory Catfish in there to keep algae from getting out of hand, he doesn't mess with the babies, although he does like brine shrimp! lol

Anywho, this is my ten gallon tank that I use for a nursery, I was changing out a little of the water so I had the light over on one side of the tank where a lot of my fry decided to go mingle. You can see them better here than in some of my other videos!

The oldest fry are about a week and a half old or so(You can make them out pretty good, most are orangey with some clear scales around their frames), the second oldest are about a week old, and what a difference a few days make in their sizes! You can make those out easily, they're the little half black and half orange ones. And the youngest ones were born two days ago. They're the smallest and mostly grey/brown or silvery in color. They are tiny. It's hard to pick up on them all still, but you can see I have atleast 30-40+ in there(In my next video I will probably say "Oh heck, I have no idea" for the number)! Some are still hiding, but most have figured out that it's safe to come out and swim around. =)

Soon I'll be adding some Creamsicle Lyretail mix babies in there(My creamsicle female bred with both my Black Sailfin Molly and my Silver Lyretail molly), and possibly some Balloon molly fry(They may or may not be purebred Balloon mollies, the mother was purchased pregnant). Might even be adding some black molly and marble molly fry soon as well. lol I have several expectant mothers due in the next few days-few weeks(The creamsicle is due any day now, but they do sometimes hold the fry longer). I'll be sure to add more videos! Though I imagine people will be tired of seeing them from me soon. LOL

I feed the babies a very small amount of finely crushed fish flakes, a small piece of algae wafer, frozen brine shrimp, frozen bloodworms and frozen mixed veggies. All in frequent(3-5 times per day) amounts, and no, not all of it at once. Mollies like to have variety in their diet though! But for the most part they get the veggies and flakes(The flakes have good calcium that all the fish need, baby or adult), and every other day to every two days I give them a very small amount of bloodworms or brine shrimp, they shouldn't have those protein foods daily, be they frozen or live.

I was playing DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 2, that's what the wind and music sounds are, as for the scream, that was my 11 month old nephew getting excited over something. lol
