New little one

Hey everyone,

Yesterday I went to Petco and I ended up buying one of the babies. I'm sure it is a breeder cull because he is missing part of his anal fin and his back is crooked but it has so much spunk I had to give it a chance. I'm very excited to say that it made it through its first night and it just ate some frozen bloodworms. The little guy is pretty active and swimming and exploring its tank. It's even started to color up a nice blue green. I've looked at some fry charts and I'm guessing it's 8 to 9 weeks old. Still no idea on gender though. Fingers crossed the little guy will grow up :)

Well start of day three of being under my care, and still doing well. I've been feeding frozen bloodworms, is that alright or should I try some crushed pellets too? I think it's a girl, because I think I see an egg spot, I'm not quite sure though. I've been calling it "Ash" I don't know why, it just stuck.

I also kinda decided that from now on I'll only buy babies, if raising this one turns out well. I figure the adults at the pet store have a better shot of a happy life because beginners should be able to take care of them, whereas the babies are lucky if they survive the petstore. But like I said we'll see how this goes first.
