My hendra pair look so much happier now I moved their juveniles out into a separate tank. One of their offspring has a deformed eye but since it survived this long without intervention I thought I may as well let it live.
Got the great news that my stiktos pair were sent out today so they should be arriving tomorrow. Crossing all my fingers and toes that they arrive okay. I thought I'd paid the poor transhipper, but turns out that I had put all the money into the wrong paypal account.
My killifish fry are doing fine. There is six that I can see, plus some eyed up eggs. I also collected around a dozen more eggs from the mop and have them bubbling away in a separate container.
Now I feel torn. One part of me loves my wild bettas, but another part of me wants to just sell the whole lot of them because lately it seems I have had nothing but trouble.
The fry/juveniles seem really prone to coming down with velvet/ich and since my pairs spawn quite frequently I am always afraid I am going to start an outbreak in my thus far uninfected tanks.
At the moment, my killifish just seem so much easier. I do a couple small water changes a week, and they are thriving. Plus it takes ages for the eggs to hatch so I can get myself prepared properly.
Anyway, enough moaning, here are some pictures of my uberis fry. They have whatever external parasite it is that runs rampant through all my grow-outs, but they are doing fine apart from that. Got a heck of a lot of males in this group.
Then here are some better snaps of my male and female australe.
