4 Months Update - Eggs Hatched, Baby, NO filter, NO CO2, NO Ferts 5 Gallon Nano Tank

Video Channel: Foo the Flowerhorn

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.
