I'm too weak hearted to cull, unless they are sick =<.. I'll probably just try to give them out at my local aquarium club if i can't sell them.

I finally got off my lazy butt and took some pictures! =)

I noticed they seem to be all different sizes! there are a few that looks like they just hatched O.o... Hopefully they catch up soon. I have been changing about 3-4 gallons of water everyday, so hopefully that is helping out.

I'm not sure if i am feeding them too much, their belly is kind of huge, lol... But no one has died yet!

Can I just say that I adore you for making a spreadsheet. I am such a weirdo for lists and I LOVE this! I can't wait to make one for my spawns

My babies are 24 days old! =) I have started doing 8 gallon a day water changes instead of 5. I have also started training them to eat dry/non live food.

I have been harvesting my bbs slightly early, so when i feed them there is half bss and half decapulated brine shrimp. Before each feeding i also feed them some dry food first.

I might start to substitute a whole meal with dry food.

The dry food i'm currently feeding is a food mix that I love. Its a mixture of decapped brine shrimp eggs, golden pearls, earthworm flakes, plecocaine,
astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, lutein, and beta-carotene. Its call LOTSOFFISH MIX #2, lol by lotsoffish. They seem to like it. So once they are trained to eat mostly only dry food, then i'm gonna move them to my other tanks to grow out.

How old till i feed them frozen blood worms? I would like to add that to their diet as well.

How do i spot deformities? They all seem to look the same to me, lol =<

Oh here is some updated pictures =). I will take a nice video when later tonight when i get home =).
