    Frusterdated's Electric Blue Acara Fry

    Frusterdated bought 2 electric blue acaras 2 weeks ago or so and a few days later they spawned. I am raising those fry and here are a few pics of them. They are about 9 days old now. They are feeding well on live and decapsulated brine shrimp. I estimate about 40 fry. These are cell phone pics so quality not very good.

    I will keep you posted on their progress. Next milestone is when they start eating flake food.

    4/12/15 Update on EBA fry. Fry are all doing well. They are now feeding on flake food in addition to brine shrimp.

    Most of the time we don't get lucky like Frusterdated did! If I am trying to create a breeding pair and male and female aren't easy to tell, I will buy at least 4 but chances of course increase as you add more.

    The babies are barely 1/4 inch and I can see the blue color already. I think my cell phone camera won't show it but I will try later to get pics that show the blue. They are regularly eating daphnia, newly hatched brine shrimp, half grown brine shrimp, and flake food.
