they ended up eating them but they layed another batch and now i got lil wriglers but i had to seperate the male coz he was eating them the female is fine she don,t go near the bottom of the tank to feed she just eats the falling food and any thing that gets past her the babys are laying in to already and they only hatched some time in the night between the 27th and 28th also does any one have any advice on moving fry this young coz i have to move house on the 16th at the latest coz i have to hand my keys back by the 17th cheers people thanks for all the support

you could try moving them as you would with larger fish but i doubt that they will have much of a chance because of the stress they will go though but just try moving them into a bucket and see how it goes
