free fish fry @ Pets at Home

Hi guys I'm not sure if this is a deal but I am pretty sure it is a good one!
If you go into your local pets at home, look in the sumps at the bottom of the tanks and you will often see little baby fry swimming happily around in there. Fry are very small and will often get eaten by big fish so need to be kept inside a breeder net inside your tank or a little tank on there own. If you ask he person working in the fish department if you can take some baby fry of there hands, they will often scoop as many as they can out of the filter and give them to you for free! please share in the comments if this works at your local pets at home or local pet shop!

So you are going to take home a bag of mixed unknown fish to grow on at home. Not exactly responsible fish keeping, although I wouldn't expect any more from the numptys working at pets at home. If you want to keep fish go to a dedicated fish store.

Actually, if you are an experienced fish keeper you can identify the babies from there shape and markings. Not that you would necessarily know anything about this.

My Corydoras had a single fry once. Then they ate him.

Not exactly irresponsible either. They could easily be kept in a segregated tank. Then as they grow you might get a free bargain.
So what fish do you keep?

he's right, got a bag full sitting in a saucepan now, oh gawd what have i done.

So how do you think these fry get in to the tank? By magic?

Has your mum told you about the birds and the bees? It works with fishes also.
