Thanks ravenwinds! I took over 50 pictures, and these are the only ones that made the cut.
Due to a slight miscalculation on my part, turns out that the fry are actually 13 days old: they will be 2 weeks tomorrow (Wednesday) Oops!

Why have you decided to keep the male with the fry this long?

** Nevermind, I just read your reason.
When do you plan to take him out?

I'm planning to leave him in there until jarring. That is, as long as he behaves himself, LOL.

If dad behaves when fry are small, he should do so until they are big. Just don't let him see a female when fry reach 1cm. Sometimes they make new bubble nest and try to protect it . . . killing junior (not always).

Congrats and keep up the good work.

The fry turned 2 weeks old today! They're ahead of the curve, at 7-9 mm each. Bettatalk lists 2 week olds as averaging about 6 mm. Gee, I must be doing something right! There seems to be about 75-100 fry at this point, but its hard to get an accurate count. Dad's still doing very well with the fry. I've kept a pretty hands-off approach with this spawn, since I'm pretty busy with school.

I'm having a quandary. I'm debating keeping this line going as orange, or to start breeding mustard gas. Has anyone ever seen an orange MG? Like, blue body, orange fins with black edging? I like orange, but I LOVE mustard gas. Just a thought at this point. And how would I do this without having to start over?

Yes. They pop up on AB from time to time.
You would have to wait for your fry to be close to two months to figure out if they carry the coloring... they might surprise you.

Haha, yep, I'm expecting the unexpected with this spawn - working with petco genetics should pose a nice challenge.

15 days old - The fry just had their first meal of 200-300 micron Golden Pearls and Instant BBS. They LOVED it! I was a bit worried that they wouldn't eat it since it didn't wiggle, but they had no problems what so ever. The snails went after them, too. I don't think I've ever seen a snail move so fast! 0_o

Quick question: What color comes in first? Where does it first show up, and when?

I've seen dragons with blue bodies and red orange fins at Petsmart.
