These guys are doing good, but it got cold last night. They are getting big. I think there are 6, but 5 for sure I know.

How soon is too soon to jar them? I'd like to get them inside ASAP, but a full 30G tank is hard to move. =3 And if I take dad out now is there anything huge that could happen? I think leaving him in has helped but right now I think he's probably ready to quit being dad.

They're doing good. I transferred everyone into a 5G bucket in the house because of the temperature drop, and I removed daddy, and he's now in recoop, I think he was a little stressed, his fins are looking a wee raggidy.

I had 8 babies, one of them has passed on, I assume it was stress from the move and he didn't like it. I think their growth is a little behind, and I see one of them is being a bully so he may be removed early.

So I have 7 healthy babies with full stomach, and surprise I'm 99.99 percent positive I have a double tail, is it possible? This is a F1 I think..

Great that you got them in. The one that passed may have just been weaker due to the temps starting to drop a bit. Otherwise FRY handle moves pretty well from my experience. Take some pics when you get time maybe, when i want to see thm better i take a pic and zoom in XD

Every time I get my eyes to focus on his tail he moves away. And their tails are clear so its kind of hard to focus on them. lol It definately looks different than the other fry, so I'll be sure to keep a good eye on him.

When I get back from my honey moon I'm going to dive in a little deeper and start another spawn, in the house this time. =3

He finally (or she) held still long enough for me to see he/she is indeed a Double Tail! I'm very excited. The split is very clear, and I can see the rays. THIS IS AMAZING! Woo. Now for some pictures. Sadly I can't get his tail because all the photos are taken from above. (they're in 5G buckets)

The fry are about 5 weeks old.

Thank you.

After removing some of the plants when I relocated them. I've found there are 2 babies, with double tails.

Also, they seem to be much happier without dad? They're blowing bubbles everywhere. lol
