they have definitely grown a lot this week. and yes, i am still using bbs. i wish they would go for the powder stuff.

a few of the bigger ones started showing hints of red in their tails. this is the best image i could get.

he is the second biggest. i think he made himself alpha male. he is really aggressive towards all of the other fish.

Can you tell the sex of the fry already? I guess you can tell by their behavior. He may need to be jarred before too long.

i personally believe theyre not big enough to do any serious damage. a little push and shove is okay for me.

i am moving homes in a few days. i hope they survive the trip.

i woke up this morning to 10 or so dead babies and the rest of them look like theyre gonna go too.

there are so many things that might have gone wrong:
  • used a 2 year old bottle of water conditioner that came with my used tank. did a 100% water change without aging.
  • my last batch of brine shrimp didnt hatch for whatever reason
  • tried frozen daphnia. only a few of them ate. but water turned really cloudy even after siphoning
  • tried powdered stuff with semi success
