Thanks :)

My goal with this spawn is to double my number and produce at least 30 viable fish that survive to adult hood. Hopefully no more than 50 because I honestly don't know where I'd put that many jars O.o. Another goal is to power grow and have them at adult or near adult size by 3.5 months old... so I'll be doing 90% water changes hopefully every day but if not every other day for sure.

Mines pretty much the same as yours lol. I doubt since its my first spawn I'd have more then 20-30, if that, but you never know. I've also been talking to Jeremy on UB and he said he fills up his spawn tank slowly with aged water, the day or the day after the fry are free swimming so I think I'll try that.

I may be scared of doing big water changes everyday because I might suck up fry....But I guess I'll have to get over it lol.

If I was spawning in a 10 gallon I would do the add water daily method but I prefer to spawn in smaller tanks so I have to do water changes. Changing water with tiny fry is a PITA!! It takes forever because you have to make sure you didn't suck any up. I'm going to try to suck most of the bottom with a turkey baster and siphon the rest via air tube with an airstone or pantyhose at the end... a la Mr. Vamp... we'll see how it works. Hopefully these youngin's will grow fast and I won't have to worry about it for too long.

Anyway, here are Jackies new girls.....They are super nice finny 8 ray females out of my green BOS male bred to my multi BOS female.....And yes, they are built just like their Mommy!

Wow I LOVE that first female! Great fin structure and color. I think either one will go GREAT with Dan.

Thanks for posting the pictures :)

I'm still not sure who I'm going to use first. I'll probably go by whoever seems to like Dan best LOL

Here's Dan...


That was from back in January I think and I believe he's finned out just a bit since then.

I'm really curious to see how the male fry develop since Dan was a late bloomer. It's hard to believe this was the fish I bought back in November LOL I wonder if that'll have any affect on how fast or slow his son's develop.

I'll be on pins and needles all day tomorrow and Wednesday until my new girlies arrive. :) I've got their jars all ready and waiting for them.

Dan was a late bloomer most likely because he was from a spawn that produced HMPK.....That is the reason I thought he was a female....
