Guppies ar herbivores and graze on algae as part of their diet anyways. The jag fry will eat some algae, but like I said it's the microorganisms that really help.Just IME, when my guppie frys were born they ate the algae. The microorganism off algae is not such a bad idea.
That's pretty close to standard fro any CA substrate spawners, give or take a bit. And any large cichlid pair with spawn is dangerous to tankmates, hands, long handled glass scrapers, nets, or just about anything else that moves in the tank, lol.I checked on some sites that stated it shall be 3 days before the eggs hatch, and an additional 5 days before the fries start swimming. Is this the rule of thumb? Currently, I can still clean the tank/pond as somehow the eggs are laid on the other side from the drainage pipe, and I can use a hose to remove excessive waste and algae which are away from the eggs. Hmm.. These fish must know something.
