Well they are all nipping at each other during feed time, selfish little ones they are. No damage has been done to any of them yet, just wasnt sure if this was them creating a pecking order like female sororities do or not. 3 weeks is so young to be separating.
Thanks :) I love the pics, i can get a better view of the tiny details of them with it now, instead of in the beginning, i was using pictures just to SEE them xD
Ekk, i contacted OldFishLady and she said now is the time they do create a pecking order and also, the strong eat the weak, so my miss piggy could techinally snack on one of the two tiny ones or at least hurt them enough to kill them. I dont want to limit these guys space too much yet, so im ognig to go grab a 2g for these two and hopefully they catch up in growth and can be returned to the rest later.
Actually i think i will re-set up the 10g this evening and transfer all the babies back into it, and hook the smallest two in a tupperware container with holes in it on the side. Im running low on heaters XD
lol xD i didnt expect fry to try and eat each other the first month, i figured theyd all be together, then at about 1 1/2-2 months id move them to a growout tank and THEN seperate as needed into mason jars. I must have missed this info xD OFL said shes seen her fry with a smaller frys tail sticking out of its mouth as it swims around. As i type that im making a o_o face XD Ahh, never a boring day with fry~
I was about to edit my post but i was too slow, anyways-
Edit: OFL said if i separate their water then it would be better. Miss piggy is probobly secreting alot of growth stunting hormone to keep them small so she can eventually eat them... Yeah the name suits her all too well D;
