Hey everyone, thanks for the compliments. So I guess I'll post some updated pics finally....
But before I forget let me just say these pics were all taken by a silly point & shoot camera. I merely have it on the 'macro setting' and 'flash off'. They turned out better than I expected and I don't even know the first thing about photography....LOL.
So briefly a summary of the spawn log:
3/13/13 eggs hatched...all 200-300 of them.
3/16/13 nearly all fry are free swimming at this point.
3/17/13 took Dad out...was sad to do this since he was such a good father and didn't eat any of the fry (as far as I could see) and started feeding the fry microworms.
Today there looks to be at least 200+ fry still. I seem to uncover more every time I move the plants or IAL on the tank floor. Here are some pics, not the greatest, but I tried to capture some shots to give you an idea of the swarms of fry in the tank.
And some (dare I) closeups with my point & shoot camera...
Oh yeah, so another good thing about this mating is that the parents ARE NOT RELATED so I'm hoping on a very healthy stock. If I get a big turn out then I will sell some of these but likely only locally since I just don't want to risk losing them in transit. But we'll cross that bridge when we get there....*fingers crossed*.
