thanks soccerdog, like i said im just figuring out if i want to breed or not right now. i think it will be an amazing learning experience is why i want do it. i dont care if people take the fry once they are ready. ill put them free on craigslist and im sure someone would take some of them. but yes i know im working on getting a good life for this one. he is already so much more happier than that .5g tank i first had him in. i had no idea he needed a bigger tank and he seems alive now. good thing i found this forum before he died from being in that little cold tank. but yeah i dont care about the money at all. i just want to do more with this hobby besides just looking at my beautiful fish.
