    how big are the young?. The eggs take like 2-3 days to hatch and you would not really be able to see the young swimming around. when they first hatch they cant swim until 2-3 days and is as small as your eyelash...

    those are not the babies of the one you just put in then :) It's impossible. (since you said you put in 4 days and already found babies). Do you have other fish?

    I had shubbies and they breed like bunnies and have a habit of jumping out during breeding .I don't have them any more ;)Fat fantails stay small and seem to never breed and hand feeding them from the start makes them so friendly

    haha ok :) I missed read your comment then! I have smaller fish to eat the babies because I don't want too many in my pond. But wathcing them grow is a lot of fun.. the colors are interesting to wait and see what they can come out to.
