    Bangaii babys

    So I looked in my overflow tonight and found I have 5 babys for sure. Question is should I fish them out and put them in a bucket or rubbermaid tub and do frequent water changes, or let them be for now. Or should I put them back in the main display witch is 390g.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions given.

    Depends. Do you wanna raise em? If not then I'd at least put em back in the DT. May have some kind of chance. Then again they may wind up back in the over flow.

    This new book is suppose to be pretty good.
    I know it won't help much with the current batch, but you might be able to pick the brain of a couple reefers here on RF that are successful raising banggai's.

    If you want to raise them heres what works for us. First do not put them back in the display, they wont last long even the parents will eat them. We use a breeder net hung on the inside of the display tank and raise them in that for the first 30 days or so. You can pick one up at petco/petsmart. You will also need to start feeding right away. They most likely only eat live food, bbs are easy and provide all the nutrition they need. You can pick up hatch kits at your lfs. Feed them 4-5 times a day and thats it, they are pretty easy to raise if you are ready for them.
