Baby Boom

Post by ladygoodwrench on Fri Feb 03, 2012 2:23 am

I now have about 20 more Platy babies, plus the original 3 born on January 6.. second batch born 26 January.. some growing faster than others.. some already showing their calico spots... the original 3 are good sized.. too big for being eaten, but I dont want to move them to the big tank until they begin eating larger food particals... am I being unreasonable? They are one month old... maybe wait another month or 2 before considering a new environment?

When my boyfriend had baby platies I think they were separated for about 2 month before they went in with the adults. However if they are big enough not to be eaten then they'll manage with the adults no problems Smile

Congratulations Smile that is a big batch of babies Smile

I would give them a couple of months before adding them to the main tank.
