:) That's ok, was just interested to see what they'll start to look like as they colour up more. I love the colour of your male! And I love his LONG fins!

Berta's rule, I fed mostly live foods for the for the first 4-5 weeks, since then I feed some frozen foods, they seem to love everything. my live foods were microworms and bbs, frozen foods are now bbs, daphnia, and finely chopped blood worms once in a while. Now they eat mostly frozen with a treat of live bbs once in a while.

I will try jarring a couple and see if it makes a difference in coloring, this is my first spawn so don't know all the tricks yet. But I'm pleased on how the spawn is growing, love watching them all the time lol.

Will post new pics soon.

I also feed twice a day, but not a lot either so I don't think they are getting over fed, they just seem happy little campers lol. The funny thing is that they are all about the same color right now, I expected different colors after reading so many other threads, they have a lot of red like their Daddy, but I did read that's usually the first color to show up so we will see how much they change as thet get older.

Thanks so much for that! I only feed BBS, I wonder if that's why...I think I am gonna go ahead and get some micro worm cultures too. Are they pretty easy to keep alive and cultivate?
