I think it's cute how when Horizon is scared, a really bold white horizontal stripe appears along her body.

Ya. It's cute but you know the fish is freaked out! BTW I've succesfully spawned in 2 gallon critter keepers (first spawn as I remember) but now a days spawn in 2.5-20 gallon tanks (mostly in 5.5-10 gallons).

Yeah I know she's freaked out, It only happens when I do a water change with her.

And that's good news. I'm planning on going to get a few 2-5 gallon critter keepers durring the weekend or soon after to be ready for the fry.

Remember your going to need a larger (ideally 20+ gallon) tank for the growout. Even though 2-5 gallon can be used as spawning tanks.

I would go with a bigger tank to spawn in because the bigger the tank, the easier it is to maintain water quality.

Well yeah. I most likely will get a bigger tank.
Anyone know where I can get some jars for separating?

I didn't like moving the fry at such a young age so that's why I don't use them very often (unless my other tanks are being used and I need to spawn them :P)

Thats why I would use a bigger tank, so you don't have to worry about moving the fry at such a young age.
