Hmmm.. thought I'd replied from my phone but apparently it didn't send.

The fry hatched today, or last night to be exact. They were hanging from the nest when I checked before leaving for work at 5am.

Sondheim moved his nest AGAIN so I can't get a good count. I still think 40 is the general ball park though. If I don't lose to many and don't have to cull for severe deformity this should be just the right size spawn.

To answer your question BL2033, Sondheim is named for a famous composer for film and stage. He composed one of my favorite plays.. Sweeney Todd. I like naming my fish from movies, plays, writers, actors, artists, etc and it just seemed to fit him.

I'll probably be removing him from the spawn tank either tomorrow or Wednesday. At that time I'll try to get some pictures of him flaring.

The male is so...PURDY :D his fins are like long, streaming ribbons. Okay, too much poetry here. I also LOOOVE the female. Something about her dorsal fin makes her look... cute. I don't know if that's just me being weird, though. I love the match-making here and the fry I'm sure will have vibrant colors when they're grown up!! I want to steal them >.>

I am very curious to see the fry growout from this spawn. I'm so glad Fiesty was a good spawner for you.

Her sister's babies are looking awesome... so far. Don't be surprised if you get a few very nice melanos, too.

Oh god don't tell me that! Melanos are one thing I've been hoping to get since my first pair from Karen I would be ecstatic if melanos showed in this spawn! I know they pop up in Karen's line too so fingers crossed!

As long as I get some nice blues, nice marbles, and at least one or two DT I'll be a happy camper.

I'm having to force myself to stay away. Daddy gets very upset when I look into the tank but ugh.. I just love watching them drop down and swim back up. No wonder my eyes are so bad.. I spend too much time trying to see itty bitty baby fish move around LOL
