It's possible, I'll keep that in mind for the next spawn =/

Today I see more than 12 frys free swimming and possibly another 5 still up in the nest. If I'm able to keep it at that, it's good enough for me!

Babies!!!

Babies!! About 12+ free swimming and some still in the nest. Sorry for the crappy pictures, I tried my best but my camera had a hard time focusing on tiny things ><

Only the last two pics are from today, the others are from the past two days that I forgot to upload. Again, sorry for the bad photos but I hope you guys can still see a bit

Tried to feed them freshly hatched BBS, but I didn't really see that any of them were able to eat them. Maybe they were too big?

So I will try a little bit of boiled egg yolk... Tomorrow I will have some banana worms (BW) which are apparently quite small, and hopefully that'll work

Had a bit of an accident while feeding >< Stupid me got two cups mixed up and I ended up feeding a lot more BBS than I intended to. Luckily they stayed in one place and I vacuumed them out, ran the water through a pantyhose to get rid of the BBS and then put it back in the tank. Hopefully it didn't stress the little guys out too much...

Since there are still some up in the nest I'm considering leaving the dad one more day, but he started eating the BBS (which is helping me out) but now I'm worried that he's now thinking about food and will go after the babies O_O

Frys are 5 days old!!

One little guy in particular (or maybe it's a different one every time ) likes to stare at me from the corner of the tank. I got a pic of him looking cute!
