Oh my goodness! Look at their bellies! That is the cutest thing I have ever seen in so many fry. I miss raisting my own fry!

hahaha yeah theres definitely a lot!! I'm not sure how many now, I'm seeing a few less teeny ones but they may just be hiding and growing in the plants so I dunno :P Only one i've found dead this whole time so far so that leaves 217 lol. And definitely always hungry!!

When I get my good camera back, I might take a video of them from a tripod and you can see how they all swarm to one side of the tank when I go near it lmao. It's so funny, they remind me of adorable little piranhas :P

QUESTION!!!
Never seen this before, slightly confused. Ever seen breeding bars on a less than two month old juvi?!?!
Sorry its really hard to see, it wouldnt hold still for anything and the camera wouldnt focus urg. But you can see the tail and then the stripes :S

Lovely couple and beautiful fry pictures. It's neat to see them at such a young age. I see them often, but it's still amazing something big and beautiful comes from something so teeny and plain. :)

I've never seen breeding stripes that young. Stress stripes maybe, but not breeding stripes. That is a very good pic BTW, moving fry are hard to take pics of.

hey! No problem haha. Glad you wanna be prepared! You see so many people just jump into breeding, thinking its as easy as plopping two fish together, like guppies :P lmao. Mystery snails aren't completely necessary, but they're DEFINITELY helpful when it comes to food-leftover cleanup!! I used to just siphon the leftovers out every day with a turkey baster, but I decided to get a snail instead, and wow. So much easier! I got mine at PetSmart, but if you have a smaller pet store, they may be able to order some in for you :) I think they're also called apple sails. Someone else on here might be able to assist you more lol
