Hello. So the other day my white cloud minnows bred in a 10 gallon..I took out the spawning mops..(probably too early, I'm wondering if some eggs were stuck on there..even though I believe they're not suppose to)..anyways, the frys look like they're about a quarter inch..maybe a tad smaller and are not yet swimming, BUT...they all stick to the side of the tank..are they suppose to do that? I couldn't find any readings on them doing that. They would just stick to the glass, if I tap on the glass they'll try and swim away, kind of just spirals away and stick on another spot on the glass. They still have yolk sacs too.

I thought it was strange and just wondering if this is normal for white cloud frys. Thanks.

Totally normal, put some floating plants in and they'll likely hang on those instead.

O thats nice to know. I thought it was odd because the eggs didn't stick, but the frys did. lol. Thanks for the assurance.
