Thank you so much for the compliments, but I can't take any credit. Trust me, the camera does all the work. It's a Nikkon D5000, I used a macro lens which is why the close ups are clear. I don't really like to manipulate photos, so I only use photoshop elements to resize the pics. I take and delete a lot of pics. I have found that snapping pics an hour after they have eaten gives me the best pics. At least they stay still.
This is my first spawn. I think I have approx 70-80 fry. I counted up to 60 and then looked up and there were a bunch hiding at the top and in the plants. Based on tonight's count, I am going to buy another 33 gallon long, it is 48L x 12 3/4W x 13H, which should be plenty of room.
I really like your tapping method, I'm going to try it next time. I bought some extra airline tubing, hopefully I can remember what my father taught me about siphoning.
And you are right about their personalities. I have a few that I know are going to be brats. They pester my rabbit snail all day. But to be fair, I think they view his small yellow spots as food. Then I have some that don't like micro worms, they act like they would rather starve than to eat a worm. I guess that's what I get for starting them out on BBS. Spoiled brats!!!!
