I'm sorry about your female!

I'm glad your fry are doing okay! Also you could breed some females to the male and get some different variations.

Aw no :( sorry for your loss of the female GreenTea, you wanted her so bad, and you were so happy when you got her, hopefully there is a baby from this spawn that turn out somewhat similar to her for you to keep!
*Hugs*

Hey thank you all for the support, I have week 2 and 3 photos here to finally post, things with me personally have been sort of crazy. There are 5 or so giant fry at 3 weeks but of course I can't really get photos of them. They mostly hang by the sponge filter, probably picking noms off of it between microworm feedings.

A couple other things - I'll be spawning again after new years right around my birthday, and I think I'll start with egg yolk AND microworms. Since starting microworms the fry seem healthier and grow much faster. Unfortunately I think the 2 meals of pelleted food caused some deaths and SB issues, there seem to be about 25 or so fry down from an estimated 40 -50.

I do the the female was eggbound, yes. And CFB I'd qt'd her for a few days, she had almost no fin damage and acted healthy, ate tons, no problems, acclimated her to the sorority which has been peaceful and she acted fine in there, boom, dead one day. I've treated lots of sick fish when I was fostering and rehoming them, and she showed no signs of any illness. I've very sad about losing her, hopefully there will be some female fry similar so I can spawn them to dad, or even better, a yellow marble female to spawn to dad... Next time I think I will allow more down time even if they seem to be doing great.

This has certainly been a learning experience despite all my planning, and I definitely feel better prepared for next time.

With all that said, remaining fry are healthy and have some serious appetites!

Week 2 pics











Also pictured is the blue apple snail BL has been asking about :)





Week 3 photos - These aren't great and the only ones I got off the bigger fry was with his caudal pointing towards us so you can just see his belly. The biggest difference between week 2 and 3 is that their bodies start to fill out, they look less like a head with a tail. I will post the smaller fish first.













And blue snail!

While I'm out of town for 15 days for the holidays, Tisia will be in charge of my fry. So if this gets updated for weeks 4/5 it'll be her updates. Otherwise I'll be posting at 6 weeks. Thanks again to all for the support and well wishes.
