Talking First spawn : Lots of pics

So this is my first time breeding :D I am so excited!

My fry are now 1 week old.... I have a couple q's
When should I introduce the sponge filter into the tank?
I have tested my water twice, 1st time a couple days after the fry were free swimming and I tested it yesterday once again and levels are fine. No big issues there.

when should i do my first water change?

here are pics of the male and female and the babies.....
Do you think the male is a super delta or halfmoon??? hes about 4 months old, i bought him at a LFS and he was so tiny...the size of a young female... prob about 2 months ago....

I added a sponge filter at 1.5 weeks just for movement so i didnt get the gooey surface, and i did my first waterchange on day 4-5, levels stay great but the growth stunting hormone they release on each other is why i change it daily these days xD

I am thinking you might get a lot of delta's because I dont know the females background or what her tail is really, but in anycase they will be amazing and you might get a few HM's too

Whoa, didnt know people responded! Lol

Btw the female is a halfmoon.
The male im thinking is a super delta hes not as big as a halfmoon. But my babies are already growing all are different sizes, does that usually happen so many diff sizes?
