Yesterday I picked through and removed all the java moss and carefully took out each fry and put them in a smaller tank while I did a cleaning. My current baby total is 15. I think leaving Bowie with them was a great idea because all 15 of them are roughly the same size and all very fat and healthy. I really hope they all make it. My original goal was at least 10 raised to adulthood so I'll be ecstatic if all 15 make it.

They don't have much color yet, I did notice a blueish sheen on one of the fry when I used my flashlight and a pearly white sheen on another. I find it very interesting that about 5-7 of the fry are darkish gray colored and the rest are whitish. I'm hoping that the ones that are darker in color are the 5 survivors of the Blue spawn, although it probably just means that the light ones will be light bodied and the dark ones dark bodied.

They'll be 3 weeks old on Tuesday I'll try to get some pictures of them every week to show how they're growing.


The name for this spawn is "The Caspers" LOL.. My roommate said they all look like little ghost fish so we're calling them Caspers 1-15

I change roughly 75% of the water daily or every other day (depending on my schedule). I keep two large IAL in the tank and use prime as my conditioner. I don't age my water.

Right now I'm feeding mainly frozen BBS. I usually feed two thawed blocks in the morning and vinegar eels or micro/walter worms at night. Sometimes I feed only once a day (again, depending on my schedule).

I keep the lid of the tank on all the time except for feeding and water changes and I keep the temperature around 84-86*F

Today was week 3. I did get pics but they have to wait until my laptop is fixed... Can't upload them with mu blackberry. All 15 are doing quite well and I already have my eye on a few that I'm considering keeping
