You might but I doubt it. To get a fish to size that quickly requires several feedings a day of the best foods, large daily water changes etc.

I will do the best I can and if I am going to cross the mom back to the son, what should I look for in the son. Should I look for one with the least amount of fringe or one that has the same coloring as the mom.

Fins first color last. Look for less fringe but even. Look for a good spread...as close to 180* as you can. Remember these are not sanctioned in the IBC.

they are doing fine. about 20 are free swimming but there are probably a lot in the moss and plants. There are still a lot hanging from the nest.

Sorry I didn't know you had this thread going. Normal fry count? That just depends on how old they are and if it's their first time spawning. I had about 200 from a first time spawner that were free swimming yesterday. I've had as few as 50 or so to (and I counted every single one) 619 fry from one female. Sometimes the male will eat the unfertilized eggs and other times the male will just eat the whole batch of eggs or fry for what ever reason.
