Finally got blue girl spawned

So as it says I finally got blue girl my 3rd place winner to spawn. I spawned her with my steel halfmoon male Mr.Soprano about a month ago. I can't count them yet but I think I have around 25-30 fry. The fry are very hardy and are already showing colors. In fact please take a look at these photo's because it looks like I have a yellow one in there.

These guys have just grown super fast on their own to be honest. I don't feed them very much at all. Since I only do BBS I only feed at the very most twice a day and that's pushing it. I will even allow them to go a day without eating when the brine are getting ready to hatch. I think it's better to not feed them to much. From reading spawn logs I have noticed that people who feed their fish too much often get swim bladder issues, especially when feeding brine. So keeping the feeding down is my way of keeping them healthier. I have followed other spawns that are the same age as my spawn and the size is no different so I personally don't see any value in over feeding for growth. With filtered water and quality food the fry will be very hardy and grow quickly.

Thanks! I am super excited about the yellow one too. Who knew you could get a yellow out of a blue X steel ?

Both parents must have been nonred geno(had a parent with yellow instead of red, or had grandparents who were yellow)

Nice. :3 If it's really so, then you should have yellow instead of red wash in some of the fry. A nice blue yellow MG would be a cool find xD
