Mustard Gas HM x blue/green HM

So I just now noticed the spawn log threads, lol! My fry are about 5 days old now and so far so good. Here is a link to the blog where I have been documenting the spawning: http://bettalog.blogspot.com/

Here are pics of mom and dad:

I'm not sure if I will get any mustard gas babies from this spawn, since mommy might be carrying red. We will see in a few months!

Babies are a week old today, and so far I have only pulled out one dead fry so we're doing good. I haven't started water changes yet, but planning on doing the first one tomorrow. So far, I've just been using a pipette to remove debris from the bottom.

oh wow! it actually looks like a 'mustard gas' but with red replacing the yellow. That is interesting! did most of the spawn turn out like this?

The babies are doing great! Not much has changed over the past week; they're still teeny tiny but they seem very hardy. Eating well and none have dropped dead, so hopefully they all make it to maturity!

Some will die and that's a good thing because thrones that die off young are often deformed or have health problems of defects you minght not see at all. The healthy ones will be fine given good conditions. So do get upset when you find your first dead one. If you have snails you might not notice any died because they eat it.

That's awesome that they are doing well good luck.

So, my fry are varying in size a LOT and I'm wondering how normal that is. They are 5 weeks now and seem to be very healthy, but the smallest ones look like they're only about a week old while the largest are already getting their horizontal stripes and faint coloring in their fins. Should I be concerned, or is this pretty typical? They are eating walter, micro, and banana worms 3xs/day and occasionally decapsulated brine shrimp eggs but they haven't seemed too interested in the eggs yet. I am thinking I will set up a brine shrimp hatchery now, since most of the fry are larger. But the smallest ones might not be into them.

Here's a pic from last week. I need to get another pic of some of the larger fry!
