Adorable!! Is Icarus a girl? I've never seen a ds baby!

Two questions for you guys: Does anyone have any idea how long they excrete the growth stunting hormone? And two, I read in someone's thread that a female will become egg bound if kept near a male- I was thinking about putting my babies in a 10g divided, but I think one is a male, one is a female. When would that become a concern?

Actually Tif, Icarus is a girl, those are ovaries you see; the little yellow triangles Females also have varying sizes of ovaries, like Huffle_Puffle's Mysti has very large ovaries and a few of my females have very small ovaries like your "Icarus" as well. They will grow as she does.

But they all look fantastic! Alaric looks amazing now!!

And I guess I'll post an update on my boy's as well! It's Day 176 for Steve and Tony and Day 62 for Hawkeye. Tony still has lots of growing to do but he's getting there! Steve is the in between child, half grown and Hawkeye is just growing like a ridiculous weed!

Tony when I first brought him home:


Tony as just a few day's ago:


Hawkeye when I took him in from a friend:


Hawkeye as just a few day's ago! He's grown since this picture as well! Mostly in fins but still!


Steve when I first brought him home:


And Steve, a few day's ago as well.

Are you sure? :) I took a few more shots just to be certain lol bc in person, he's pretty much entirely see through - I know what ovaries look like, and it just looks like the encasing of his intestines. Also, sorry about the poo haha it wouldn't fall off.

I agree that it looked like ovaries in the first picture I posted haha that's why I had a disclaimer :) But I have wondered if he wasn't a girl previously so it's nice to have another opinion - thanks!

Here's my new little DT baby. When I first got him/her yesterday they were almost totally cellophane like this:


But after being in some warm water, they wanted to show off their true colors! ADORABLE!:
Last night:

This morning:


For some reason the temp in the tank was 90 degrees when I got home today! Idk what the heck is going on with that thing all of a sudden, I gotta sort it out.

What do you guys think, male or female for the new baby? I'm in love already either way, but I am leaning toward male right now.
