Ok.. got some pictures taken while I was jarring some up... sorry for the delay, just been busy and kept forgetting to take some!

So.. you asked.. now you get spammed!

I use 32oz cups, kritter keepers of different sizes, 2liter coke bottles and soon to be beanie containers for jarring. None of them are sexed yet, some I am leaning towards one way, etc.. some have nips, etc, why they are being jarred.

Again, this spawn is a bit smaller than normal for 2.5 months as there was over 550 fry. About 14 had died naturally and I culled down the rest. I now have a total of 30 from that spawn. It was for the best, sadly.. they have started flourishing since I culled.

Surprisingly I have a lot of clear fins still.. may change as they age, but since both parents have red, blue and purple in their fins.. clear was not something I expected. Also unfortunately you can't see their cellophane coloration all too well.. I didn't have lighting set up, nor did I use a display case to take their pictures. I was trying to cause as little stress as possible since they were being removed from their 30 gallons for the first time. Some also have dragonscaling, which you may be able to see in some of the pictures.

These aren't all of the 30, but a good number to get the idea.
The brown water in the background is one of my fry tanks I have going.. it's holding the blue/green DTHMs.

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!

Here are some of the calmer and smaller ones in one of the grow outs. I use Ancestrous plecos sp04 as the clean up crew - they only grow to 3-4 inches and very docile and safe to use with fry/juveniles. I get them from a well known breeder. I also have a ton more plants coming in I just purchased from a friend who breeds.. so the tank is a little bare here..

Sorry for bad quality of the pictures.. expensive camera, I just don't know how to use it! lol

lol thanks :) I do regret culling SO many of them as I don't know what I culled.. but it made these ones healthier overall, so it was a good thing. Just sad :(
