This is 4 months update. The fish are called Sparkling or Pygmy gourami. Continued time line with time lapse intro.

After taking the other two males out, the pair started breeding and never stopped. The fry seem to eat microscopic worms, bugs, or infusoria. I’m not sure what I’m gonna do with this pair. I don’t really want to end up having 100 gouramis :( A decision has to be made soon, I think.

  • I know this a few years old, but you still have this problem... You wait too long to maintain your tanks, and here you've just sat back and let the adults eat the fry rather than moving them to a different tank for a month or so until the fry are large enough not to be easily eaten. Gouramis are known predators, and these guys are small and quick enough to easily eat fry. What did you think would happen? They're not like guppies.

  • Awesome. I also have sparklings, infact I can hear then croaking as I’m typing this. I’m breeding CPDs atm but next up will be my gorgeous Sparklings. I’ve had them spawn several times before when in their own tank but never got past 4 day old fry. I tried to siphon some fry out but being so tiny it was really difficult. Next try I will leave fry in with parents but make sure I have more cover for buns and now I have the appropriate fry foods as I had to prepare myself for the CPD bubs which are ranging from a day old to 8 days old and every day finding n adding more eggs to fry net. Every two days they hatch. It’s so funny how they move their bubs around to make sure their safe. It’s hard doing water changes as they get sucked up. My god you got great camera footage....I love your cat btw, but I’ve commented on her before 💙

So where were you guys hiding when all the baby shrimp were eaten and how was it fine but not this? What a bunch of double standard hypocrites. I'm actually glad all the baby fish were eaten. That's what they deserved anyway.
