Christmas Fry!

Well they were actually born two days before Christmas but who's counting! So far so good. I cant really see how many I have since there is alot of Hornwort in the tank and they are very good at hiding. I have counted 12+ that I can see. They are over a week old now and seem to be doing pretty well. Eating microworms and infusoria, a tiny bit of egg yolk and I put some "first bites" in the other day but I couldn't tell if they ate it.

I thought "mom" was gonna die those first few days, but she has recovered nicely. "Dad" is already building another nest... He is ready to go again I guess! (I'm not though) Thanks to many of you for good advice and suggestions.

Below are a few pictures. The first ones are Strawberry (female VT) and Papi (male DT) and some of the fry, but they are hard to see as they are still very tiny.

Yes Mr. V - I have hornwort, duckweed and pothaus (I think that's how it's spelled ) The hornwort makes it hard to see how many there are.. but they seem to like being able to hide in there... and when they were spawning, the female was able to hide easily... they are soft so they dont hurt their fins...
