Culled most of the tiny fry that weren't growing, including Tiny and Stormageddon. They just weren't doing well. Also culled some larger fry with spinal deformities. I took them down to my lfs to feed to the oscars, and promptly got bit by a 7 incher. My finger is not a worm!!

Fry are now 7 weeks and 1 day. Starting to see some ray branching, and several other babies are getting their ventrals in! I've reintroduced all but one of the babies I had jarred back into the growout tank: I won't have time to clean 12 jars every day or two for the next couple of weeks, and the others have caught up in size. The one fry that I still have jarred (my largest, a cute orange male) is being treated for swim bladder. I'm starting to be able to tell who's male. Lots of boys in this spawn!

LOL, okay, you asked for it!


Pardon the poop, these were right before I siphoned the bottom.


And one of Quasar. He's just so cute!

Yep, she's been living in there for about a week, along with some guppies. Everyone's getting along fine.

So, 8 weeks old and my babies are still the size of 6 week olds. Also, it looks like I'm going to end up with a bunch of ventral-less fish. Only about 3-4 of the babies have theirs. Just goes to show how important water changes/siphoning is. Ah, well, they'll still be breedable, just not showable. Maybe I'll get lucky, and one of the fry with ventrals will turn out to be show quality. I don't love them any less, I'm just a bit dissapointed, mainly since I know its my own fault.

Oh that sucks. I bet they will still be beautiful and will grow up with wonderful personalities :)

happy owner of a wild type GFP axolotl named Percival and too many guppies to count.
