Jeeen what are you going to name your baby rabbit snails when you get them? :O

And Sakura! have they gotten much bigger? One of my babies is HUGE and another one isn't far behind. I think one of them is Burrow but Burrow seemed kinda stunted in the 3 gallon

Bekah, no, they don't seem to be growing at a rate that I can notice. I need to think of names for mine, too.

Here are my swordtail fry!

And the parents for reference:

Where are the gourami!
Your fry are adorable. I wonder if their "koi" patterns will change as they grow.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

Blurry gourami. Trying again. I'll post them in the Other Fish photo thread.

EDIT: The males can be scrappy amongst themselves and sometimes a bit aggressive with other species but I've never experienced any problems.

I just put the fry into the 20gal so here's hoping they make it. There's enough plants that the adult fish should leave them alone. Frankly, didn't want to change a kritter keeper every other day.

EDIT II:
Pics are up, Olympia!

Back from getting cat food and having my sundae. And I got this:
Thin VT1.jpg
Thin VT2.jpg

I know he won't make it but I wanted to at least try. I have him in a breeder's net in a kritter keeper to make his water as shallow as possible while still having enough water that ammonia doesn't build up in 20 minutes.

Also: I don't know where to put my male guppy. I put him in with King Fabio but he threatened to eat him. So I put him in the sorority. When I got home, I found they'd bitten his gorgeous tail off (didn't think they could catch him, he's so fast!). So out of desperation, he's in with Sherm and I just hope he doesn't bug my favorite halfmoon boy.
