  • More babies on the way!

    My Cardinals are expecting. I don't know how they eat with a mouth full of eggs or young. How ever they do it.

      Just noticed them last night, Ill read up today to see what is needed. Ill never get baby brine in time, those cyclopese bars are small enough with some plankten I would hope. If not Ill see what corner critters has when I get off.

        SWEET!!! Let me know if any survive... Mandy wants some Bangais for her tank. We looked at some tiny ones at Petco in Prince Frederick but they were pricy.

              yeah, that pincusion urchin should work. that might be one of the things that triggered them to spawn. if you just noticed his mouth bulging, you've probably got a couple weeks to go. just keep an eye out. Joe had one survive with his the other year. Cyclopeeze should work too if they aren't looking for live food.

                  Congrats Jarrod. I know how exciting it is with babies. I'm having a blast with my baby shark.

                    That is awesome. Being that they are endangered and close to being wiped out I really wish you the best of luck. MASNA has been doing research and a database on folks that can breed them, if you are interested in something like that, check out their site. You could become a CNN Hero! LOL

                      Well we will see, i think I have a couple of weeks till they should be born, then trying to catch them. Dad is hiding out very good but I might move him to the breeder box if i get him.

                        Don't disturb him until just before they are due to be spit out... he may spit them out prematurely...

                            Dennis he has sorta made that decision for me. He moved over with the clown fish, its like they just put him in the back room. I hope it works out.

                              Just a quick opinion question, better to grow your own Brine Shrimp or just buy them shipped in when you need them.
