I'll be glad to take the guy with swimbladder problems. What does he look like?

I'm going to try to sex the remaining fry in the grow out. There's some that I'm pretty sure are males but they aren't showing aggression. I still can't decide which of the adults I'm going to keep.

Once the younger spawn is big enough to safely be shipped I'm going to try to sell them all together.. maybe like a raise your own spawn type deal. I am going to need to get the fish rehomed as soon as possible once it's warm enough so I won't be trying to grow out the younger spawn then sell them individually.

I'm still going to keep all my tanks and equipment. I'll store them at my parents house until I'm ready to get back into breeding. I'm definitely not giving it up for good.

ETA.. The guy with the swim bladder issues is a purpley multi-color, he's very similar to Bowie. I'm still not sure if he's a male or a female. He doesn't show an egg spot but he's not aggressive either. He's almost a butterfly. He has a very slight white edge on his fins and his pectoral fins have white edges which are very cute.

Maybe someone might like to buy a group of females for a sorority.

Sorry you have to temporarily give up something you really love. I hope it won't be long before you're back into it all.

Best of luck.

Thanks, I will.

I'm really hoping it's just going to be a couple years. It sounds like forever but during that time I'll be graduating and having to figure out where I'm going for grad school so hopefully it will go by fast. I'll probably be moving around a lot and I want to avoid having to drive/ship hundreds of fish across state lines if I go out of state.


I'm looking at it as taking a sabbatical, not giving it up. I just wish I could keep my adults, which I'm still considering doing.

S/he is very pretty... I was actually considering keeping it back to breed back to Bowie if it ended up being female because I really like that color. I'm going to try to get pictures up soon but it probably won't be for another week because my Mom has to mail my camera cord to me from home.
