Yea. Part of breeding though is that even when you lose your favorites they live on. Good luck with your breeding, it's a lot of work but definitely worth it.

The fry are seven weeks old today and looking fantastic. There are two main colours showing- the clear body/yellow fins/butterfly (first pic), and the grizzle body/yellow fins/butterfly (second pic). One in particular, the one in he first pic, is an aggressive little bugger. I actually saw a tiny little baby flare out of him yesterday.

Eight weeks today! Like I said on my other thread, if you want pics more than once a week just ask and I'll try to accommodate.

Smallest fry I have still... It's about the size of a 2-3 week old but still healthy so I'll hope for the best and jar it if I have to.




One of two special little fry that never developed their swim bladder properly and are now tail draggers and spend most of their time on the bottom. Since I refuse to cull fish that aren't in pain they'll stick around and if I can't adopt them out they'll stay with me. You can also see a fish with a green eye in this pic.

Wow! Cool green eye! Any idea approximately how many fry you have?

Your doing a great job with the fry Matt they look excellent! A small spawn not such a bad thing sometimes imo as there can be some advantages.

Thanks guys. I'm really enjoying having two small spawns, it's easy and finding them homes shouldn't be hard at all.

I love this stage, not quite fry but not quite adults, but I still want them to grow faster.
