Well, I just pitched Mike and Ike in with Bobbi and Thor.
Put the tiny babies in the 10 gallon tank and mushed up some goldfish flake food with mushed up blodworms and they are eating it!!  They swim around at the top of the tank.  I had to disengage the filter and bubbler since they are so small it was bashing them around the tank.  They are not very strong swimmer yet and they haveno egg sack so they must have hatched awhile ago.  I managed to rescue 4 I think. Undecided
I tried to tank a picture but they are about the size of baby guppies. Roll Eyes

I don't know what to do.  The filter is too strong and blows them around.  Then I tried just the bubbler but that is too strong too.   Cry  Help?!

put them in a box.. Don't they have goldfish boxes? What kind of filter do you have? Cause my filter's got a flow adjustment knobby thing that lets me controll howm much water gets sucked up. really reduces the flow. Check and see ify our filter has one perhaps that will help

Congratulations Midemae!  Cheesy  How exciting times for you now to watch the babies grow.
And i say the photo is soooooooooooo sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.
You're a real fish mum now, nursing the little ones too.
Maybe you ask in your petshop too, how to look after them the best Wink... I am convinced you do the right things.

Oh wow. Thor really does live up to his name then. and his size haha Smiley I'll be interested to see how the little guys grow up. Do you have enough space for them all? I mean, once the fry get bigger you'll need to find suitable homes... Oh I wish I could take a couple... Sad also Congratulations again Grin

Awww.. thanx you guyz! Smiley
You are the best fishy friends anyone could ever have!! Wink
I'll keep you posted on the development of the babies.  It says in my one book that you need good filtration but they would just get blown around.  I don't know for now I have the bubbler bubbling very slowly.  I cut the air tube and put in an adjustable valve to monitor the air flow.  It also says in my book that you need to do daily water changes and you can use a turkey baster to do so.  Looks like I'll be busy every day! Cheesy
It also says that you need to feed them like 10X's a day!! WOW! Grin

Wow!!  Congrats!  They *are* cuties!  I think you may have had the first baby goldies on the board!  How exciting!  Will we be allowed to help choose names when they get older?

Yeah, they should be fed many, many times, and pretty much each time d: I read that some Brine Shrimp nauplii would be good to feed them! Since they can easily be hatched for the fish and the little babies enjoy fresh food full of protein (: The nauplii can last for a few hours in the tank, so the fish can eat them for a good while Wink But if they enjoy the blood worms and stuff, don't bother getting any Brine Shrimp hatchers xD
About the filter I read somewhere that a good filter and an air stone (Low speed, like you have it!) is very important for the water quality since the babies need to be fed so much and often. And that these filters should be sponge filters, since the little ones can't withstand the intake of power filters. Have any spare sponge filters?

By the way, please show some pictures when they grow! (: I'd love to see some young goldfish! *sparkle*

Ha.. rough draft, lemme know if you like it:

___________________________________

Like all good stories, this is of life
and strength and courage to overcome strife
but locked up and trapped in this watery world
Sweet queen Bobbi and the currents that swirled

Kind Bobbi, she heaved a bubbly sigh
alone without love would soon make her cry
but out of the blue came a dark stormy cloud
and cast upon Bobbi his elecrical shroud

"Come hither" cried Thor, in all of his glory
"Come hither my love, let me tell you a story
and after I'm through, If you'll grant me a wish
Come live in my palace and be my lovely fish"

The kindly queen Bobbi looked up in surprise
as the almighty Thor looked deep in her eyes
and he told her a story of love lost and gained
While Bobbi sat list'ning, and inside she pained

The stormcloud withdrew, and with it did Thor
and Bobbi did weep on the bright gravelled floor
but before she exhausted herself to a sleep
she heard her love's voice telling her not to weep

"I'll be back for you soon, love, don't worry at all
And with my return, you'll be given a ball
of many a joy, no I don't mean just one
but you'll be granted my children. All forty one."

Queen Bobbi was smiling, she swam in his milt
and out of her belly, many eggs spilt
She danced in the water and looked outside
but before she could blink, her king swam by her side

"I told you I'd come back" he said with a grin
"Did you think I would let you alone in this din?"
He gestured to all of the young baby fry
and in unrestrained happiness, Bobbi did cry

For all of love's losses, and all of it's pains
at the end of the day you think of all of it's gains
I'll let it end here, this story I've told
for the story of life is more precious than gold.

_____________________________________________

Well what do you think? guys? Mindemae? pretty good on the fly, hey?

"she heard her love's voice telling her not to weep"

Here I may write:  she heard her love's voice: "please don't weep"
... just to match up with the rhytm... what do you think?
