Day 3. (6/22/2013)

I was very busy today, but managed to take a quick snap shot of the tadpoles.

This day started out well. The nest has been renovated by this night. Pimp D. looks very alert; He is cautiously aware of his surrounding. We have a stare down contest every time I peek into his hood (Of course, I win every time). He is a great father with the tadpoles. However, it seems though not all of them has hatch yet (will check temperature next time). His stomach seems the same, which indicates he probably hasn't been doing any culling himself. It was a very simple day today. Next update will be in a week or two or if anything goes wrong. This concludes day 3 with a picture below.

Thank you for the kind words DQ. It's starting to get lonely on this thread, but not all too bad.

Squiggles!!

Best of luck! They are a really nice pair. If they happen to throw any long-tailed babies sign me up.

Day 5. (6/24/2013)

Male has been removed on day 4. There appears to be less than 50 fry's. Hard to work with this amount considering how many fry need to be culled. Will wait till pairs are ready again for respawning. Will probably cull the whole spawn depending on how many fry there actually are by the time the pair is ready for spawning again.

I don't understand? Why cull a small spawn? Isn't there just as likely to be that one fish you're looking for if you were to pull any random 50 fry from this pair?

And aren't small spawns easier to deal with?
I know a lot of folks pull out the biggest ones at a month and then cull the rest just so they don't have as many to deal with - you already don't have as many to deal with, so they won't be as crowded in the tank, not so much growth hormone, not so much competition for food, etc. All the reasons folks give for culling down to about 50 in a month or so.

Not trying to judge or anything. I'm just new at this and wondering about the reasoning.

More fish, more choices. It's just a choice I choose. Lose 2 weeks and have more fish, or continue this spawn and have very few fish to choose from. From a 200 fry spawn, if you cull down to 50, that's okay. With 50 fish or less, well, you really don't have much to work with after you're done culling. I was being generous when I said less than 50; we're probably looking at 30? There's no right or wrong reason for culling. We'll see 2 weeks from now how things go.

There will be no more of this spawn. The pair has been sold. Will update the spawn in the next week. Still considering culling the whole spawn.

I find it witty the way you described your fish's sex life. It reminds me of soft fishy-porn (I hope that's not too inappropriate)
