Never seen anything like this....

I FINALLY got a Super Red HMPK spawn. They became free swimming late Monday night and by Tuesday night the male was removed. I'm very surprised at how large they are already....I got a clear photo! They began eating BBS and I can avoid sucking them up because I can actually see them. I've only lost one (before free swimming) and I've already added new water.

Parents:


Fry:

*bump* SIKED!!!

Also there is this weird kinda flea like stuff in my tub...I'm guessing infusoria? I guess the fry are eating it because they're full and they haven't been fed in a day.

Egg yolk, microworms, vinegar eels, and BBS :) (BTW tell me if you have trouble hatching the eggs I sent you because I have not had a hatching with them, I was lucky and found an old vial). Also they're eating those wierd things in the tub...I think the IAL introduced them.

Actually the female is HUGE. In fact I'm surprised I even got fry...she's bigger than the male.
