Yeah these fish only get shrimp mix every other day. I feed about six times a day with NLS and flakes. I've been doing water changes every two or three days because of my feedings. My filters can't handle it so I'm upgrading to FX5 and my 30 gallon sump.

How often do you feed your fish Andrew?

Just pulled 11 wigglers. One of the females swallowed. The other still has a good clutch. I installed an FX5 on the tank last night. Gonna do water change after work and start back up on my power feedings. I slowed down because I was forced to do water changes every two or three days.

I have 21 wigglers. Changed substrate today and did a water change. Biggest female was breeding as I was leaving for work. Got a video. In this one she laid three but the entire time she laid mostly three or four. Big clutch.

Last night I got 25 free swimmers and wigglers from four females. Two more holding. Small clutches but they are consistent. To date I've gotten 70 fry. Lost 30 due to power outage. So I have 40 survivors thus far. Looking good.
