Finally got round to move the fry into an 8 gallon grow out tank. Hopefully they will start to grow faster with the extra space. I also did a count and there's 180 fry. I initially estimated 100-120. I'm actually quite surprised how many there are.

There's still around 30 fry that looks less than a week old. They just don't grow at all.

The larger ones are starting to show colours on the fins and body.

Hope to post a few pictures up soon :)

Ha ha.. Yeh it is a crazy amount! I hope to sell some locally and keep some for myself. I might have to cull some of the deformed babies but I will feel bad doing it :(

A couple of pics of the fry at 7 weeks old. They are eating like pigs lol and growing up fast. They seem to know its feeding time as soon as I walk into the room - They would dart to the surface (usually in one corner).

Thanks guys! I'm currently living in Hong Kong and will only sell locally - Sorry, unless you're willing to travel here and pick up a few lol. I have never shipped fish abroad and not sure how it works.

I was looking back at some videos of my last spawn from last year, which only 4 survived, and comparing both spawn at the age of 8 weeks, the previous spawn seems a lot larger and more developed. All 4 fry had already developed full colours at this stage. I guess there's more competition for food. I think I will start to feed them frozen daphania and maybe frozen blood worms to help them grow quicker.
