Jack Dempsey Fry 9 Week Old

The Jack Dempsey Fry are growing at a faster rate since Bo’s been feeding them brine shrimps.  The last part of the video shows Bo feeding the Jack Dempsey Fry brine shrimps.  I think they love it, it is organic and good for them.

 I notice that some Fry are bigger than others.  I guess it is survival of the fittest in the aquarium minus all the predators in the real lake environment.  I think the bigger ones are about .75 inch long. They are still too small to leave the aquarium, I’m guessing that it might be 2 more months before he can give them away or selling them.

  1. Hi Carsten and truels, I haven’t made an attempt to count them yet, so far only a few died during the first 3 weeks. My dad and sister only saw them on my blog until last Saturday when they came over to visit and they thought the Fry looked a lot small than what they saw on my blog. It’s relaxing to watch them swim around, and they don’t seem to get tired of exploring the small aquarium.

    • Cambree, it seems like some of them have a growth spurt. Bo had to change them to a bigger tank the other day because the old one was leaking and I think they will grow faster now since they have more room. It’s relaxing to watch them schooling around.
