I look at their face...males have stronger and thicker jaw bones.

I will get some pictures when i get in :D

I have had a few deaths, partly due to my microworm culture not producing as it should (i recon) so they have had less of a diverse array of food. Last time that was their main food source and unfortunately this time that is not the case. I'm hoping they are big enough to go onto bbs very soon. I still cant count how many there are though!

The coconut crew disbanded, and they all now hang around the new sponge filter and plant i have added now that they are big enough to find food.
I have started doing regular cleaning of the bottom of the tank, and have been gradually topping up the water levels to start filling the tank. you can see their little pectoral fins now, I will try and get a pic of that :)

and as for entering the little one into the contest, i might just do that, although i did win in december with a fry pic quite similar... so i might give it a few months lol :D

The parents are beautiful. I just have to ask... you put a coconut shell in there? That's a great idea! Any probs with it?

the only problem with coconut I suppose is that its a mission to make it safe! you have to break it, take out all the coconut insides so its just the outer shell, file the edges to make them smooth, and file off all the furry husk. but other than that its perfect for hiding and stuff. looks good too!

I have taken some pics of the babies, will upload them after dinner :D one of them is SO CUTE!
