Thank you! :) I try my best. And I know, it makes me very happy that prince will continue on in my life through his babies once he's gone. That's part of the reason I bred him :) He LOVES when you talk to him. Swims right up to the front of his tank and wiggles at me, lol. I'm hoping the babies will inherit that trait :D Probably a silly thing to breed for, but since they'll juat be pets it might be useful. Little Miss is just a spaz lol, hence her name. (what my mom called me when I was little and in trouble) haha

Update!

The babies will be 2 weeks old tomorrow!! Yay!!! I'm also happy to announce that they are now strong enough to swim away from the suction of the airline tubing! :D There are 4 babies left (that I can count for sure, still hard to locate them in the big ten gallon since it's fully furnished lol) and they've doubled in size. No pictures just yet, my camera still can't see them very well, and even if it could focus on them they're constantly zipping all over the place lol. Soon though, I promise! :D

My favorite baby decide to rest on the not-in-use sponge filter where I was able to hold my jewelers loupe up to the glass and put my camera behind it! Yay!

I hope so too, I'm a bit more at ease now that they've made it to the 2 week mark. How are yours doing? Any pictures?
Mine are developing personalities already, which I find absolutely amazing. I guess I didn't really think of them as fish until I saw one cock its head at a mw the other day.. Almost made me cry I was so proud, lol. I have to say, to everyone out there who breeds these beautiful fish, I consider you heros. It is absolutely miraculous.

Awww! It's pretty addicting, huh? I want to breed again so bad, but we're moving five hours away at the end of summer and I'm not sure fry that small would survive a trip like that, so I'm not taking the chance.

I just keep imagining all these different color patterns and what the four are going to look like when they're older lol. The possibilities are endless!
