Baby Growing up

Just a way for me to track my little fish growing up. I'm pretty sure it's a girl. I have been calling her Ash, but Alex also sticks too. I'm not sure which to go with.

Here's our 1 week picture. All the pictures are from each day, except I skipped the sixth day, I ran out of time. I was leaning towards female but the fins are starting to look kinda long. Guess I'll see...

Here are some day 10 pics. So cute and active. I've never gotten a front view pic. Still not sure on gender, I'm thinking more male today. Either way I don't care. I've noticed it's back has straightened out some too.

The piece of paper between Ash and Guillermo's tank slipped and the two saw eachother which incited a flare-off. I think Ash is a boy.

Yes Ash is a boy, there are no ovaries and he was just extremely emaciated when you brought him home Females also flare though, keep that in mind and sometimes more than boy's. I had a girl that never quit flaring, I mean she did after a while, but you would have thought she was a boy with how big her beard was!

Your baby is cute though.

No new pics today, but he is trying to make a bubblenest, I think. I will have had him for two weeks this Saturday, I'm amazed at that because when I got him I wasn't sure he'd make it, but I had to try. He has probably doubled in size since I got him. His care isn't too different than for older fish, I just change his water more often and feed him more often. I do think he has internal parasites but he has been getting epsom salt starting two days ago and I have seen an improvement.

Thanks :) I love his personality, I think because I got him so little he is more outgoing compared to his older "brother" who can be more jumpy and tends to be shy. Here's some day 15 pics.
