Remember my Red Devil breed!

http://www.flower-horn.de/Forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=23

My male red devil died yesterday! He didnĀ“t start to eat. Form the middle of September to December he ate nothing and I separated him to late from his fry (young fish).


When do you separate the fry from parents?

The young fish like to eat the skin of their parents and they are a lot of young beasts!

I start to feed my other fish with the young devils, but i want only 30 or less of them. The other devil in my tank adopted them and my oscars or clarias have problems to catch them!

Sorry to hear that Trim.

I have the suspicion that your RD might have had something else, a healthy fish just doesnt starve itself.

Are you sure he didnt have and internal parasite or something similair?

How was its digestion? Did it poop at all? Was the fish all swollen up?

Im going to have to agree with Ozzy, a healthy fish just wont starve. Its sorta hard to guess what could have been wrong with it seeing how its dead but it very well could have been somthing internal then mixed with the stresses of rearing fry it proved fatal.

Trim,
I am sorry to hear about your males death.
I had Midas fry recently and removed them after 5 weeks.
I removed half of them after 3 weeks and 2 weeks later the remainder.

Sorry, I did not realize that I wasn't logged on in the previous reply. In my brief experience with breeding fish, the fry seem to grow faster
with the parents.
