Sorry I havent updated in awhile! Will get pictures soon I have spotted a doubletail baby! He/she hasnt developed any color other then black along his anal fin and I also have a red baby that is showing black along his/her anal fin Im hoping that the black will develop into what the dad had. Also one orange baby! I really wanted to retain an orange so hopefully he/she will have good form.

Speck, Blue, and the doubletail fry does not really have a good split but I wonder what he'll turn out like you can barely tell but the end of his anal is black.

Thank you! I wish they would develop faster but they all seem to be healthy and happy so thats all that matters. Looks like Speck the little red one is going to have to be jarred soon he/she is building nests and flirting with the others not showing to much aggression but Im sure it wont be long now

Just fed some of the bigger babies some mosquito larvae they loved them here is little Blues black tummy (yes I name all the fry after their colors cause Im creative like that lol) Blue has an oviposter I dont think you can really tell in these pics maybe a female? Im 90% sure Speck is a male just based on the fact he has a bubble nest going and is flirting with blue all the time and trying to chase her/him off from his area all the time.

This question is for those of you that cull! I need some advice Im thinking about culling a large amount of fry from this spawn. I would personally not cull based on color or finnage only with health problems. Im thinking and I could be wrong because Im a newby that the reason Im having problems with my fish might be malnutrition not because I havent been feeding them enough but because of the fact that I've only fed them microworms since they started free swimming. I recently purchased instant ocean nutrition instant baby brine shrimp and I have seen an improvement of growth in the fry and general activity. The problem is not all of the fry are improving and the ones that arent dont hardly even move. They always have full little bellies to so Im just confused I think Ill wait a week and see if there is improvement but what do you think I should do? Basic info on current care they are in a 29 gallon tank always have microworms in the tank for food I siphon the bottom of the tank twice a day and and probably about a 25% water change a day. Only other thing that I think might be doing it is my tap water its pretty gross I wont even drink it because it tastes so strongly of chemicals. I use prime though.

Take them completely of MW. Add frozen daphnia and frozen anything that will fit their mouths. MW probably shouldn't be used after four weeks. They will still survive on it but not flourish. :)

See I did not know that I tried smashing up frozen brine shrimp and they were just to big for them. Ill go see if I can find frozen daphnia at the pet store.
