The baby catfish are growing fast. I moved most of the guppies out of the 29 gallon tank and into various other tanks. This allowed me to release the baby cats into a well planted tank. I purchased both live plants and plastic breeding glass. I arranged these things around the tank to give the babies plenty of cover across the center of the tank from end to end.

I left the first set of parents in the tank an they have not bothered the baby cats. Some of the guppy fry have tried to nip at the smaller catfish fry the first day or two. I have stepped up the feeding schedule to try to keep the guppies distracted with frequent fish flakes rather than catfish fry. At three weeks the baby catfish are becoming more confidant with their surroundings.
