    Default 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!

    I will! I'm kinda in the dark since no one knows what to do for them. I'm a pioneer!

    Yeah, you can tell just by looking at them. Much smaller and helpless. Baby banggais could basically hatch and grow up in the display tank without doing anything. Not these guys, instant food for all.
