I released her today. I figured I should give it a shot while I was spending the day at home. She fit right in. Both her & the big girls acted like she had been there all along. I'll get some pics tomorrow!

I'm glad your baby is doing good with the big girls. :) I can't wait to see.

Well I am happy to report that my new little one continues to do well. Yesterday I did a 75% water change during which I removed he gravel substrate except in one little small Gladware cup that I had anchored one of the plants in. I put a tan colored towel under the tank and added a merino? moss ball as well that I picked up during a trip to Petsmart for a new heater. I so appreciate whomever it was that mentioned this. It has made things easier for feedings as I can easily see any uneaten food and syringe it out with the turkey baster. (Which incidentally the baster has worked well for feedings, too .. I just put whatever I'm feeding in a small amount of tank water and then express it right next to the baby. It's funny because after a couple days of this he/she knows the routine and is eating enthusiastically at each feeding. Before I figured out this method
the food was going everywhere and it took a lot of time to suck all the uneaten food out.)

Here's a picture.

Well, gee - I didn't realize the picture was posting sideways. What the heck? Anyway - all still seems good as of this morning - I was a little nervous to be leaving all day and not being able to check on the baby until this evening. And WOW - when I walked in to my office this morning and saw Murray, he looked HUGE!

So it's been a month now since my boy (yes I'm finally certain it's a boy... XD) came home with me.

He's grown quite a bit since I brought him I think....



First day...



Yesterday!


I'm not quite certain how old he is yet, or what tail type he is. He's about an inch now (maybe a tiny bit more) in length, not including the tail.

Someone told me in this thread earlier that he is a VT male, but while his tail's certainly been growing, it's growing more spread out/rounded like that, rather than longer and flowy.

Maybe someone here can give me a better idea? :]

He looks like either a widely spread vt or possibly a VT. Dorsal and anal look VT but the tail looks DeT, I'm kind of stumped as well, guess we'll have to wait and see!

IDK, I am trying to look for spilt in the end cartilage of the fins (not sure the correct term) to see if it is VT or CT. Looking more like a VT for now.

Curious gobbled the whole algae wafer that was supposed to be for the nivertebrates, and she definitely over-ate. I put her in a breeder's box until her tummy shrinks. Also, she has white tips coming out of her bottom, and she has egg build up...tough to be a girl sometimes...maybe that explains her appetite.
