Day 14, 1/12/13:

The fry are doing well but around 20-30 fry seem to be growing very slowly. They still look about 4-5 days old. I also noticed one or two of the smaller ones with crooked bodies. The rest seem to be growing well and some even reaching 9-10mm long. I'm doing 25-30% WC every 2-3 days, removing all the gunk at the bottom.

I'm having some problems hatching my BBS (never had problems in my previous spawn) so having to buy live BBS from LFS, which cost around $1.5 USD per small bag. I've already bought 2 new cans of BBS eggs for around $10 USD each but they're still not hatching. Not sure why :(

Anyway here are some picture updates:

Feeding time!

Thanks DQ! I roughly have 90-100 of them.... and they're growing quickly each day. Can't wait to see what I end up with... male or females... colours... etc..

Day 24: 11.12.13

Some photo update of the fry at 3.5 weeks old. The majority are growing and eating well. Some reaching around 12mm long. There are about 10-15 fry that look like they're still 1 week old.

Some of the larger ones are starting to show some colour and really tiny ventrals :)

It is the best thing, especially knowing I helped to bring them into this world!! I can't stop popping into the tank room to watch them swim and eat. Watching them hunt for BBS is such an awesome sight. Just the way they turn their tiny bodies and pounce on those BBS.

Can't wait for them to get the stage when they start to have colour and finding out the sex :)

Thanks Mahs. I hope to get a few marbles but was wondering if I would get Koi? I heard that if you breed a solid with marble there's a chance you can get Koi? Koi is something I want to achieve.
