Aemaki has a petco baby with the same issue, it seems like the SB didn't form properly, and the fish will end up special needs for it's life. It isn't a death sentence though. Just needs some extra attention.
You're welcome. I think what Aemaki is doing for hers, is letting her build up her swimming muscles, so she can be housed in a 2.5 permanently. She started her off in a shallow dish, and graduated her from there as getting to the surface became easier.
Hopefully Binky will watch over her grandbabies from there!
Moving can be so stressful DQ, It can really take a toll.
I will move the *special yet un named fry* to a 4 inch deep container and put her in the heated tub area. My f2 spawns appear to be highly aggressive compared to the parents * laid back* spawn for some reason. At this rate I will have to jar much earlier they chase each other around like mad for such tiny young fry.
The journal was deleted because I didn't like it anymore.
@mah Bananas fins have improved pretty well He is one shy boy though. It looks like he has a new home a young lady is picking up 5 this weekend and Banana is one of the ones on hold.
Today I power cleaned the fry tanks as carefully as possible and fooled around making them an auto drip in and out to cut down on effort doing wc all the time. They are growing rapidly but concerned about the swim bladder of a few in Chuck Norris spawn. Its funny how they are so much like Dad very hyper. CN and Smokey keep changing all the time and ive noticed some of the girls from that spawn adding color late like their Mom. Google actually starting to look good as moustache has disappeared. 10 girls were delivered to a pet store today and I used the credits to buy a months worth of NLS, bloodworms and a new heater for a tub after I foolishly did not top up the water in time and wrecked it.
