Do you mention anything about tank size in the water change section? I recall a lot of people asking about that :)

Yup, I did :) Noting that while 1 gallon is okay, it's going to be a lot less work on you and your back if you have a larger, more stable tank 3 gallons +. I'm linking the cycling section to it so I don't have to go through the entire thing, that would make it much too long and boring lol.

I always see babies at the petco I go to, they are all so tiny, and I think its very strange that they are all 1.99, but they could grow up into one of the expensive types later

Yeah but the chances that you're going to get something other than a VT are very slim in most area's. Also the chances of it living past a year is also slim in most cases, heck, half these babies die before they're six months old even!

Just wanted to give an update on my babies here! It's been a while since I've posted about them

Pierce but DTPK multi boy! Yeah, it is a boy I found out. I should have trusted my gut feeling about him I'm good at second guessing myself though...
When I first got him:


And not the best picture of him, but the most recent. He's still on the small side but he's a full grown little boy now!


Slightly older picture but his form hasn't really changed and I wanted to show that ^_^


River when I first got her a month and a half ago:


And pictures from last night, she is also stunted but an adorable feisty little girl!



And drumroll please! My newest addition to the family! We welcome home Silhouette, a beautiful Black Copper Devil Butterfly HM baby! She already has four rays! She also might end up partial dragon scaling but hard to tell at this stage! She's slightly smaller than River is.


Bleached out here but you can see her beautiful butterfly markings!

update

Just realized that I've had these two for just over 3 and 1/2 months. They're so big now. Still can't fully tell what Uo is. Originally thought girl, then boy, but then started to lean back toward girl (mostly because of belly and the way Tony is flaring at Uo through their divider, T might have built bubblenest, not sure). Just really not sure. Anywho, comparison shots:

recent one isn't the best, but Uo wouldn't stop moving, so couldn't focus.
