I was pretty bummed. This happened twice before I decided either the setup, or them, or him. or her. He was such a lovely fellow too.

Anywho. So i got this guy from AB

His name is Burt!

And I got a lady who looks a lot like him. They did their dance and had some eggs on 6/25 and they hatched!! they hatched on 6/27! And now i have itty bitty adorable babies! I am going to guess 50. Hard to tell.


This was the day they hatched.
Burt moved most of them into the plant to it made it really had to count.

I've got bbs and microworms. its so hard to see if they are eating. I really need to invest in a magnifying glass.
They are cute!!!! So very cute. Idc if this happened a year ago. Still awesome.

Happy 3 week birthday, fry!

They are getting easier to photo since they are getting bigger and the camera in my phone can figure out better what it is supposed to focus on.

still not the best pictures, but they arent terrible!

It's been a while since I updated. Sorry if you've been curious!

I set up a 30gallon for them to grow up in and popped about half in tonight.

they are tricky buggers to catch! I tried to get the biggest ones to put in the big tank so the little ones can sort of catch up in the 10gal. the littlest look like they are about 2-3 weeks behind the big ones.

they are starting to nibble at flake food. I need to get a good razor to chop up some frozen bloodworms for them to see what they think of that.

They will be... 8 weeks old on Thursday.
I will try to get more pictures once i have all the big ones moved over, but here is a picture of what i have so far.

Also, I added a pleco to each tank to take care of algae and missed food. one is an albino bristlenose pleco, and one is a regular bristlenose pleco. they are cute :)
they do a good job, but they sure poop a lot.
