    I've had 3 of them in my tank from the beginning, once a month like clockwork 2 of them go off to the corner of the tank and as one lay eggs the other one foillows to Fertilize them. well low and behold i was looking in the back of my tank tonight and there is about a dozen baby fish swimming around , still with them yoke sack.....the only sad part of this is that i know that they won't make it!!!!........has this happened to anyone else???

    I have had Catalina Gobi's breed in my tank in the past and all the young became live food very quickly. It is nice to know that your tank is running well enough to have the fish breed in there. I'm sure someone here can give you advise on trying to save some of them now or in the future.

    can we ... with plastic panel or any other way.... separate the 'eggs/small fishes' from the other fishes?

    Will they survive?

    Congrat's!!
    are the young large enough to eat newly hatched brine shrimp? If they are to small for the brine you may be able to feed them rotifers. Perhaps even golden pearls?

    I think it would be awesome if you could raise some of the fry to adulthood!!

    I'd try to get them into one of those clear plastic breeder boxes that sits right in the tank and feed them live rotifers. It's still a long shot but it could work.
