Day 26--fry active and growing well. Had 2 losses of "runt" fry which, I am pretty sure got beat out on food. All others doing well.

Having issues with cloudiness in this NPT grow out and have no clue why. Did a 60% water change today and had done 20% changes the past two days. I added a second sponge filter as well, rinsed all plants and used a turkey baster to get into the substrate. No plants show any decay so unsure as to where it came from. There was a slight odor as well so, the 60% change, I hope gets rid of that. I will do another 20% change tomorrow. Rinsed first sponge filter out, thoroughly and added second. First sponge filter rinsed in emptied tank water and noticed how brown the water was afterwards so, this could have been the problem.

Fry being fed live daphnia (moira) and really seem to go at them, trying to catch them as they move quickly. Also did feedings of MW and WW/BW, and a final feeding of frozen daphia and frozen bbs.

My wild's should be in on Tuesday so, I will put them in the established NPT tanks I have had going, for over a week now. Pictures to come after tanks are set up.

Two other spawns placed in tonight and hopeful one more will turn out okay.

June 20, 2013--Have culled the crop, immensely. Many were not growing and not good quality. The rest are good size, showing colors of a blue tint, and a reddish tint. Everything looks good and doing well.
