-flail- I found a fry who has red fins!! :) he bopped a smaller sibling on the head for the BBS the little guy was after his fins are large, red, and he seems to be one of the largest fry in the main tank.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

So, this little fella had caught my eye yesterday. Today I caught him (using a ladle lol) and put him in a breeder's box. He seems to skim the bottom of the tank, though has no problem staying upright his bottom end seems "heavy". He also seems to have grown extremely fast... Considering the largest of the fry are not as big as he is! He is HUGE! However, perhaps it is a problem with the spine that is causing this fella to tail-dive? He is fast, darts to get where he needs to, and when he takes a breath from the surface he darts back down to the bottom, where he continues to scout for food (skimming along the bottom). Not sure what to do with him, truthfully. Not sure if something like that could get better, or if he will pass away... Or live a gibbled life.

Well, the way he moves looks wrong - like he is having a hard time staying up at the surface or middle section. Who knows - we will just have to see

Yup! Some are showing dad's colors... From the turquoise bodies with red fins, to just red fins... This'll be cool!!! Even the wee ones are getting colors.
Well I'll keep an eye on my large baby.

They now eat decapsulated BBS, which I mix into the regular BBS. Which will help when I go to work, as they nitpick the bottom of the tank for food
