Bluegill spawn in 100 gallon infant yeast infection aquarium. sunfish-including largemouth and smallmouth bass pond boss forum

I thought i had 1 "male" and 3 "females" in the tank but a week ago i saw the infant yeast infection largest "female" trying to make a second nest and seemed to be infant yeast infection courting the "2nd largest female"… So i removed the "male" from the aquarium and sure enough the "largest female" moved into the big/main nest (there’s only really room for 1 nest) and a week later i have bluegill eggs.

A couple of takeaways. Before i knew the "largest female" was in fact male, there was a lot of reason for me to think infant yeast infection it was female. It generally had lighter colors. A significantly smaller and (to me) rounded ear tab. I witnessed it dancing with the "male" in the nest on multiple occasions but never resulted in infant yeast infection any eggs.

The eggs do not look like i thought they would. In fact, yesterday i thought i had some sort of mold infection infant yeast infection in the tank because it was just a translucent jellylike infant yeast infection haze. But today, i can see some actual gnat sized creatures hopping around, especially when the male fans the eggs and kind of infant yeast infection stirs them up. There’s also some shiny spherical objects which i am not infant yeast infection sure what they are.

I have no filtration in this indoor tank. It’s circulated by air stones. I have a bag of substrate hanging in the far infant yeast infection corner (under an air stone) for extra surface area. I vacuum the tank every few weeks at which time infant yeast infection I do a 50-70% water change with my 1500 gallon outdoor aquaponics system. I just did this a week ago when i removed infant yeast infection the original "male". The glass also gets bad brown algae buildup but i infant yeast infection brush it off with a magnet brush every few days. The brushing causes the water to get cloudy for a infant yeast infection a day then it all settles out. I dont remove the particles so they must still be infant yeast infection in there somewhere. I didnt show the terra cotta pots but they are infant yeast infection mostly covered with brown algae. I think there’s more microbial life than at first glance.

I *did* have a good algae bloom in my outdoor 800 gallon infant yeast infection ferrocement tank but my tilapia fry (look more like fingerlings now) took less than a week to filter most of it infant yeast infection out. It still has a greenish tint so i added a infant yeast infection couple of gallons to the indoor tank today to try infant yeast infection to get some algae reproduction started.

I also have a clogging problem in one of my infant yeast infection grow beds where the water stands above the substrate.. It has developed a thick moss covering along with snails infant yeast infection and little tiny jumping insects. I scooped a couple of cups of that mess and infant yeast infection added it to the aquarium as well. I dont expect the fry to be able to eat infant yeast infection the insects, snails or moss right away, but there’s a whole tiny ecosystem happening there.

With my tilapia fry i have kept hundreds alive in infant yeast infection a 55 gallon aquariums off of pulverized fish food and infant yeast infection algae wafers (the algae waffer breaks down and starts to come apart infant yeast infection in very tiny pieces and they seem to be able infant yeast infection to eat it) granted the tilapia fry are probably 4 or 5 times infant yeast infection bigger than these little guys so that doesnt mean i infant yeast infection dont share your food concern.

I think they are too little, i have been trying to think of a way to infant yeast infection really show their size. Just know that in my picture you see gravel but infant yeast infection you are looking at thousands of eggs/sack fry. I have to stare at it when several egg fry infant yeast infection are moving AND at the right angle to see the infant yeast infection an individual. They are about the thickness of a head hair and infant yeast infection maybe 4-5 times longer than wide.

Absolutely. I have started 12 mason jars with water from the infant yeast infection 800 gallon tank. Just leaving them in the sun. The water already has a light green tint. I figure i can use two a day and do infant yeast infection ~6 day cycle. I am just afraid it’s going to be too late by the time the infant yeast infection algae gets going good enough to make a difference.

Thanks, I will stop murky-ing the water with yeast then. Tomorrow should be the third day so from what i infant yeast infection have read they should finish absorbing their egg sack and infant yeast infection start swimming? There’s a fair amount of brown algae, will they peck it off the walls or should i infant yeast infection brush it so the particles are suspended? When they get big enough to switch to zooplankton will infant yeast infection i be able to switch them to grinded feed pellets? Or should i be starting cultures now?
