I don't know exactly how big they are, but they sure are bigger than my last spawn was at this age. :P

I'm doing 90% water changes every other day...

Wow, I can't believe they are showing color already. I can't wait to see how they turn out. I know it's been said a ton of times before, but water changes really seem to be the key to producing great fry.

My fry will be four weeks old tomorrow, they are huge and are just starting to show slight black coloring.

Four weeks old today and these guys just GREW since last week. Unfortunately, I have a lot of little runts in the tank. So I've been thinking of maybe dividing this spawn but we'll see. Overall though, I'm happy with how these guys are growing. I couldn't get any good pics today, so I might pull some of them into a kritter keeper and take a few pictures of them in there and post them later. :)

Like splitting up the big guys and the little guys so the smaller ones could catch up...

oh okay. My friend did an experiment and took one runt and one larger one and put them each in a 5 gallon tank to see who would get bigger and the runt turned out bigger. It just goes to show that you should never underestimate the runt.
