Have you bred before? Also let me know if the egg yoke works i have never tried it and i have gotten alot of mixed reviews regarding it, just because it clouds the water and its not live so the fry dont eat it.

Nope, never bred before :) But I plan on breeding again later of course, and hopefully I'll have more options then.

Yeah, I've read all sorts of different things about the egg yoke, but I thought I'd give it a shot and see how it goes....might turn out really well, and that would be awesome xD

Ahhh, yes, I was referring to my future spawns where I will hopefully have more options in terms of food. :)

Cool! It'd be nice to know your experience with it as well if you decide to try it for sure :)

Alright, little update! Fry are free-swimming as of yesterday and daddy came out. Kind of hard to see them, but if I look long enough I can see QUITE a few little buggers Mostly they're hiding in the plants and obviously seem to be scared of me, though there is the occasional bold one that I swear will sit there and stare RIGHT at me! xDD they're absolutely adorable! <3

Anyway, here are a few new pictures:

Haha, really? It seems they hatched early too....and they're actually bigger then I thought they would be(thought still very small).....maybe its just because I don't have much to compare them too :P

I'm going to admit that I've been lazy and haven't boiled the egg yet, however I have fed some BBS and they seem to be eating those just fine....I'm definitely seeing quite a few with little, fat, pink bellies I'm going to go down and boil an egg here soon though, so I'll try that tonight and see how it goes.

do all of them seem to be eating the bbs? typically some are too small to eat them and they may die off. My fry are expected to become free swimming tomorrow, and i plan to feed them egg yoke two times a day for the first 5 - 7 days to see how it works.
