Hi all! Just joined the forum. 2 1/2 yrs ago I bought 2 tiny little BN's & we are on the 3rd breeding. Long story short... 1st batch didn't make it (went on vacay w/ strict instructions for hubby, which he didn't follow), 2nd batch (my loach figured out there were eggs/babies & they didn't survive. My BN's are very forgiving as I now have batch 3 (in a 10g baby tank)! So, last count I have over 100! First batch there were 22....looking for info on best care for these ones. I am currently feeding broken algae wafers & spirulina flakes. Again, hubby didn't listen, has now moved Bam-Bam (Daddy) back to the main tank (babies are approx 1 1/2 months old). They are thriving this time so far. Curious also as I have several that are still clear/white, is this normal? Will they color up eventually? Or is it that they are just less mature than the others? Sorry for the long post

I’ve bred lots (200+) of B’noses, only lost one. They ate blanched/ microwaved zucchini, cucumber, carrots and kale, all had preferences and in the end only ate zucchini , which I alternated with algae wafers.
