Thinking I might grab one of my bigger girls from my sorority now and then re-acclimate them after the conditioning. No one seems to have any defined areas in the sorority. Everyone just kinda swims everywhere. Though I think this girl is bigger than the boy...which may make things difficult. xD

Still.....I want the cute fry sooo bad!!! Fishies need to get in the mood. :P

lol virgins aren't always easy.. before this spawn I spent a couple months trying to get a couple virgin girls "in the mood".. they wouldn't give it up, regardless of having bellies full of eggs. Sometimes it takes a while, and sometimes it takes the right pairing.

The other pair that I mentioned took a week to do the deed, both virgins. This pair with the fry it took mere hours, the male was a virgin. So, you never really know.. why I say patience is a big part of breeding, I had to learn it.

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

They hit the two week mark a couple days ago - a good number of them I can see dorsals coming in, all have pectoral fins now.

Saw one today struggling to swim.. if he passes (ended up losing him in the crowd), then he will be my 3rd confirmed death :( He was close to it, but he ended up wiggling sideways into a grouping of plants so couldn't find him. He didn't look to have much more strength left in him. He was a good sized one too.

lol.. he struggled.. was able to get up to the top of the tank a couple of times.. when I tried to scoop him out his siblings swam up thinking I was feeding them and I lost him in the shuffle, ended up scooping out another lol (in a styrofoam cup).. I looked in the cup and these two little black eyes were looking up at me as if I were a space ship and I just abducted him lol.

Didn't see a dead body when I fed them this evening about 15 minutes ago.. so we'll see.

LOL that poor thing! I can't imagine being a little fish. You just blew his mind. He'll be the hardest one to scoop from now on. xD

I sure hope he makes it! How cute of a story would that be. :3

lol why is it when you want to scoop them out, you can't no matter how hard you try. Yet, if you just want a cup of water from their tank, you end up with three or four in the cup.lol murpheys law I guess.lol

Unsure what happened to him.. never found a body. Have yet to find any bodies in this spawn and it still looks to be at least a couple hundred fry.

They are starting to get larger water changes now, and starting to add a bit of dry fry food into their tank in hopes some will start eating it.
