A couple my babies are showing their mom's iridescence heritage already...she's the yellow platinum dragon cousin of your mama. Of course, dad has it too...turquoise as he is!

3.5 weeks - I tried to get some pictures today, but my cellphone camera just will not cooperate. Tiny is still tiny, but eating and he seems to be growing. Stacato Mamba is still a little piggy. I bought a tub of earthworms for my frog, Spot, and got some lovely little whiteworms in there as well, so the babies got a couple of those for dinner. They are a pain in the butt to harvest, though! It was so funny, the smaller babies were the ones going after the biggest worms. How can such a tiny little fish fit such a bit worm inside? Still no color. I'm starting to wonder if I got a spawn of 75+ cellophanes!

I fed some of my largest thawed bloodworms so I know what you mean about the little fellas snacking on the biggest worms maybe you did get cellophone? This'll be interesting!!

So its day 24, and I'm just now starting to see a little bit of color on my biggest fry. Looks kinda orangey-red, so yay! And some of the bigger ones are breathing air!

It is so cool to watch them turn into bettas! Yay, some orange color and starting air breathe!

I was on aquabid last couple of days...seller Blimp33 had some yellows and oranges...one looked just like Quazar (sp?), your spawn's daddy! And another one was a more saturated, brighter orange (not as bright as bettascapes newest acquisitions)...I wanted him so bad...but I was a good girl and didn't buy him....though I still wish I did :(

Ravenwinds - I saw Blimp's gorgeouse boys: I'm thinking of getting one to outcross to.

The babies seem larger every time I turn around! They had cyclops for dinner last night. Most just spit it out, but I think they'll like them once they get used to them. I'm now feeding walter worms, instant BBS, golden pearls, whiteworms, cyclops, and vinegar eels when I feel up to messing with them.

Your babies should get huge on such a diverse diet! :)
Mine get banana worms, vinegar eels, golden pearls...that's about it unless they're still picking through the infusoria. I've been thinking of starting daphnia but haven't wanted to go through what seems like a hassle...having a home for them and growing green water as well...but one of the live food guys on aquabid, who lives in Oregon as well, described his setup for daphnia etc...he uses a bucket. Anyway, after reading his information, I am getting closer to choosing to do it :)
Wouldn't Cyclops have a similar set-up? How do you raise them?

I use frozen cyclops, actually. I've wanted to try raising daphnia as well, but all my usable tanks/containers and equipment are currently in use, and I'm out of funds at the moment. My outdoor snail breeding tubs are full of greenwater, so no problem there!
My babies have noticeably colored up since last night - seeing what looks to me to be red, orange, and possibly faint yellow. I was worried because they seemed to be falling behind the growth curve last week, but I think I've got them bach on track, maybe a little bit ahead again.
