good to hear everyone is doing well! what do you feed?
Apparently koi and goldfish will eat their eggs, but not the fry once they've hatched. As soon as they recognize them as being fish, they won't eat them.
I did hold back feeding after they spawned so they would feast on the eggs instead.
I know what you mean about guppies, they don't call them millions fish for nothing.
