    Baby Copper Cardinal Fish

    Here they are! This video is when they had just hatched. According to Matt Pedersen, this may be the first ever documented hatching of copper cards in captivity. Right now they are in a larva tank aka 5g bucket with larval rotifers for food and an air line for some water movement.. There are about 50-70 alive right now.


    Be sure to watch in 1080HD!

    That is awesome! How long did you have the parents before this happened?

    I've had them since 10/8/09 but they started spawning 2/27/10. They spawned 8 times since then but the male would drop the eggs or eat them. Now he finally figured it out. Let's see if I can figure it out now.

    Ok- GREAT NEWS!!! I SEE FULL TUMMIES!!! Look at day 6! Almost all the remaining 10 or so larvae have full or almost full guts now! Guess they were unable to eat the rotifers till just recently.
