update: The babies are still up in the nest. Every once in a while one will fall and most of the time it will get itself back into the nest without Aiden's help. They are so tiny and fast lol. Not free swimmers yet but getting close I think.

update: I got free swimmers!! I count about 7 babies swimming around in there. Took Aiden out 3 days ago because I saw only one free swimmer and thought that was all I had left. But after I took him out the next day there was another baby. Then more started to apear each day untill today. I guess those babies weren't quite free swimming yet. They are sooo tiny, cute, and fast lol.

Put Aiden in a divided section of a ten gallon with Cobalt on the other side. I'm not sure if Aiden has eaten yet but he's not getting skinny. He even has made a bubble nest and is flareing at Cobalt so I'm not worried about him.

Here is a pic of one of the babies. This pic is pretty good for my camera to get. The baby is the speck in the middle of the pic.

Thanks, they are doing very well ;) I love sitting in front of the tank and watching them dart around. I could sit in front of that tank for ever...or untill I cant stand to sit any longer lol.

@shards- Hope everything goes well for your first spawn ;)

update:
I think all the babies were free swimming by the 20th so they are 1 week and 2 days old today!! :D I also think I may have 10 fry instead of only 7. And I can already see a difference in their size. Some are bigger than the others too.
Today I did their first water change and also turned on the sponge filter. They are doing great and seem to be fine with the flow of the water. (not that there is much flow at all)

Darn I'd have a pic of a couple babies but my computer once again decided not to take my camera card So no pics unless my computer decides to take my camera card again.
