Good point Bambi. If you have a really bright light or just a flashlight, that will work.

To check for velvet take the flashlight and shine it on the fry. Velvet is a rusty or dark gold color.

To be safe, I would separate Godzilla.

Looks like they are doing very well, hope there isn't any velvet, but better safe than sorry.

Well I took a look at Godzilla this morning and he seems normal as usual. Even a bit bossy towards the other fries who came too close to his little "cave" under the sponge filter corner. Rude little thing lol. Shone a flashlight on him and the other fries but I didnt find anything that looked like velvet. The only copper I see is on godzillas anal fin and a little on his back. Thats where his dads got copper too so I'm thinking its just colouring :)

Usually a couple of months, although irridesence (sp?) has shown up on some of my 3 wk old fry.

I know I start seeing color...I mean real color on their bodies at two and a half months old. Also, iridescence for me doesnt show up until about a week and a half to two weeks because they usually have that really nice sheen color when under a florescent light or a flash of a camera. That's how I test the iridescent color out.

haha in terms of bubbles, I'm not sure if her colour is just irridescence or if it's actually colour. It shows up with or without a flashlight. (Brighter with a flash though obviously). She's a month and a half old now. Same mom as this spawn, but Sheldon is the dad.
