Little pictorial update

My little guys are 24 days old and are looking good!! They just finished a meal of BBS so their little bellies are full :)

You can see that some are getting red in the tail and dorsal fins and others are getting that aqua blue hue that the father had.

I'm going to transfer the group into the grow out tank this coming week.

Very beautiful! I have a similar colored spawn coming up as well. These ended up all being light bodied with red wash in the fins. I'm hoping that a few will turn out to have a little more color. Good luck finish raising them up :)

Wow, I can't believe how big your spawn is.

My first spawn is over a month old and they are not even close to being that size yet...

I am feeding BBS every 12 hours and dry food mid day, I do a water change once every 2 days and siphon the bottom of the tank. I added 10% more water than I removed with each water change. I give 12 hours light. I keep the temperature at 82 degrees and have live plants and snails in the tank.

Other than that I guess maybe the genetics of the parents play a big part.
