I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

I think I'm going to scrap most of this spawn. I have 3 large ones that I'll be keeping, but the rest are severely stunted in growth and I always seem to have one or two struggling to get to the surface....I don't like seeing them suffer.

I'll probably cull tomorrow unless someone gives me a good reason not too, and then buy another male that looks similar to dad, and hopefully find a female similar as well once I get some cash in my account...

don't worry skyewillow, you will still get the 2 I promised and I'll keep the 3rd.

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

I'm sorry :(

I wouldn't mind a cull, so long as its a girl.
How badly are they stunted?

They look like they are stuck at 5-6 weeks and are maybe 1/2 te size of the babies you see at petco. Won't even wean off of MW's over to flakes like the larger 3 will.
I just don't see a point in keeping it going anymore.

I will probably save 4-5, the largest 3, the metallic blue I'm in love with that's stunted, and then the largest of the stunted.
Once I cull the rest and jar the bigger ones I'll see if growth rates improve on the 2 smaller ones. I'll take pics

I'm really sorry to hear that they're stuck. I wish I could help out in some way!

And thank you, I appreciate it.

Ehh, it's fine. It sucks that I didn't have a good spawn, but can always try again :) I wanted to do an HM spawn badly anyways. Longer fins = easier to decide on gender

they'd probably still mess with you like Oddball is... lol

I'm looking forward to watching a HM spawn grow though.
