Fry Pics

I decided to air on the safe side and decided to bring the fry back to Savannah with me instead of letting my Mom take care of them. I got the final count and it stands at:

9 Multibabies (Sid x Nancy)
2 Marbles (Rio x Ada)

I'm not happy with myself. These fry are MUCH smaller than they should be. I'm chalking it up to being a NOOB but in all honesty I just wasn't giving them the attention they needed. They went without food and water changes sometimes, especially in the past two weeks. Life stuff just got in the way and the poor babies fell to the bottom of the totem pole.

I'm going to work doubly hard once I get the babies back to school to make sure these 11 make it to adulthood.

Pics: The babies are 6 weeks old
Multibabies...







Marbles..
This is the Double tail.


I tried to point to the spit so you could see it.


This is the other one (I call her the girl and the DBT the boy)

Nice pics!
I wanted a multi-baby but I didn't know you only had 9 left.
That double tail baby is looking nice. I like his color and I'm really liking that dorsal fin.

They're really cute! I don't think you should beat yourself up about them being small, though. Stuff happens, and these two were your first spawns.

Thanks guys.

I'm going to be keeping at least 1 male from each spawn and if I get any females I'll also be keeping 1 of those. I'm really hoping that my two marbles are a male and a female so I can do an F2 with them. I'd like to keep two pairs from the multibabies if possible.

The remaining 5 will either be adopted out or sold.. it's going to depend on how good their quality is considering the bad care they've received. If they have decent fins/color I'll sell them (cheaply though) if they have curled fins/bad color I'll adopt them out.

I'm definitely keeping the marble DBT because I want to breed dbt so you can expect to see some DBT spawns maybe next summer

They're 6 weeks old. Spawn date was June 22, 2010. They're about the size of 4 week old fry though.
