I may try grindal worms for conditioning, but they are pricy! At least compared to the other worms on ebay they are.

I did the research for them though.. but still cant figure out how you know if the batch goes bad or when its time to start a new culture.. How do you know?

Grindal worms maybe pricey but trust me they are well worth the money. My 30 fry live off of it and i feed them more than 3 times a day and i seem to just not run out of the worms, they reproduce like crazy. You don't really need to restart a culture cause i dont see them dying off for whatever reasons, maybe if you forget to feed them for a long time. My grindal batch that I bought isn't a culture it was ready to feed batch. The worms came with the soil and still lives in it, you can also divide the batch into seperate containers if you want to. Just make sure that you put fish food in it everyday for easier harvest.

Here's a link of the seller where i got my grindal worms http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...odl&1329103112

Around the 3rd week I believe, it also depends on how big your fry are.

Heh thanks!, hows your conditioning going so far? I'm wondering what color is (not sure what pic number) they look kinda like gold/yellow color on them

pic 6 - I'm leaning toward boy cause it sometimes chase them around, and his fins are getting longer. He's also the biggest of them all that's why he's the bully xD

pic 2 and 3 are the DTs, except that picture 3 is not giving us any justice cause of the bad shot.

The bent spine fry are doing great, I can't even tell which is which because they just blend in with everyone

Yeah I think it's the first one that has the gold looking color on him/her.

The conditioning was doing great, but there was an emergency for me to go out of town. Though I should be getting A Super Red HMPK pair by next week or the following week then some giants and a whole sorority by the following week or next week.

So I think I'm going to hold off on the red and black hm dragons. Also their fins are separating like the caudal of Draco looks like someone had cut it with scissors. I am hoping that they will heal, but all three of my males have that happening. And is mostly the caudals. I think with some AQ salt, they will heal up correctly.
