Thanks Shae and Mah. Ive noticed a couple things that are different from the parents f1 spawn. The f2 has a lot more color early. The fry are way more aggressive for some reason. I think the growth rate is faster as well but that may be because I have more experience this time and made fewer mistakes but Im not sure. Way more fin development as well when I looked at pics from the parents spawn from the same age. I find fry really cute at this stage of development.
Many breeders go bbs only and do very well. I still feed some mw for a week or so then I start adding frozen daphnia, bbs, ect. along with the nhbbs. In about 2 weeks I will start them on a small amount of nls grow. A varied diet is a very good thing.
