Oh man, i'm really sorry! Everything seemed to be going so well. If you might suspect velvet, the best way to check is to get a really bright flashlight and shine it on them. If you in fact have Velvet on them, it will look like a gold or rusty look on their body or fins.

Good Luck and let us know!

Lol I'd check for velvet if they were larger than a pinhead ;) I'm not that skilled in picking it out lol. I did deal w velvet in my previous sorority (and actually saved all those girls!) so I'm treating the fry the same way, sort of. A little less intense as I don't want to overmedicate. They're doing well though! And hey, for this pairs' first time spawning, 15-20 fry is a decent turnout. Much better than my last virgin spawn where the daddy ate em all!

I do have high hopes since most are eating and active.

How frustrating.
I admire you patience. I would've probably culled the surviving fry as I would not have the patience to rear such a small spawn.

Let us know how they are doing. I really hope the reamining fry stay strong for you. They will be amazing when grown!

I haven't updated in a while! I knew most of the fry I moved weren't going to make it... Only a few of them were eating and moving around. Currently I have 6 that are healthy and happy (plus a few more that haven't given up the will to live yet). I've been taking extra special care of them and have seen fin development! :))) I'll continue my regimen and hope these 6 make it to adulthood!

A very bad pic, but you can see a few fry with very full BBS tummies

They are so cute! I hope you get lucky and get at least one male out of the bunch!
They are what, 2 weeks old?

@vilmarisv - they hatched on the 1st so yep, they're 2w2d old :) I was just thinking today that I hope there's a male LOL, BUT if they're all female they can go in my big sorority no problem!

@bettalover2033 - The pair is doing great! The female was nearly healed up, but I put together a sorority recently and now she has tattered fins again :/ the male is happy and eating, blowing bubble nests again too... it's funny, the female is actually raring to go again. she swelled with eggs again and is barring like crazy. I need to tell her to rest!
