I have been trying to have success for a while raising some young from my pearl gold marble male and Rob's blue female. I had a couple of spawnings that looked fine at spawning time. Quite large batches that hatched out as normal but then just seemed to wriggle for days finally dying off a couple of weeks or so later.

This is something I've never experienced before so was a little confused. In desperation, I this time I raised the temperature from the normal 77deg F up to 80 deg. My thinking being that this would speed up the hatching process and maybe get them past the difficult early stage.

It seems to have worked because I now have a good batch of fry that are happily eating brine shrimp and growing fast.

Here are some videos.

Hope you like them.

Congratulations Trevor,
I wonder if raising the temperature was cause of coincidence, but certainly I tend to keep mine at about 80 rather than 77.

All doing well. These are the parents. I decided today was time to move them out to give them a rest from the fry picking at them, which they do once they start to grow.

Nice work. It is such a great feeling to see them raise them successfully.
