haha yeah. So they're..what 5 weeks and a day old now?

All the larger ones have been jarred(about 15-16) so the smaller ones have the ten gallon to themselves(another ten or so).

the albino is still alive(for anyone who was fallowing that) and is still among the larger of the fry. The rest have got a nice blue coming in as I had hoped.
My water changes have been a little slack, for a few reasons,but they're back to everyday.

The one i was unsure of with the tumor..I'm still unsure. x.x He seems to be swimming better now so i've decided to see where he goes. He's in with the smaller fry though since my jars are on the taller end of things.

I don't know when the web reduction is supposed to start showing up. The fry are all still really small though so I'm not to worried about it. Ijust wanted to observe the ray curling issue from as young as possible.

Ray curling usually show when they're over 4 months ..... unless it's a severe deformity which should show at around 2cm (size of fry) or when their fins begin to develop. But most cases fin curls occur when they're older. This is why it's advised to re-breed them after they're 6 months old.

Why do you think there would be some ray curling? Were the parent's fins curled?

I'm one of those that are following the albino! I really hope he makes it.

Still only have my laptop for pics so I can't really get anything up. xD I'm hoping next month I can set them up one by one in my 'photo tank' and get some decent pictures.

Fin curling shows up in hard water. I've never tested my water(i do frequent water changes and don't cycle so they're not of much use for the price of them), so I'm just curious as to if my water is alright for CT's or not as I've never kept CT's and if i plan to breed for show I want to avoid it. xD

EvilVOG, that would be awesome.<3


the albino,as well as the rest of the remaining fry, are looking good. :) The ones I jared adjusted well to living alone and being moved. The small ones still together are loving the less crowdedness. xD It's adorable.

Yes and no.
My currents spawn is almost to that point where I try to switch them to other foods(my largest will bite at frozen brine shrimp but doesn't quiet get what it is xD). But might be doing another here very soon who i'm thinking of staring on bbs instead of decaps to see what kind of difference it makes. xD

In the future, could you please check the date stamp of the previous posts before you make a comment? This thread is over two years old, and I am sure the original poster has rehomed most, if not all of the fry by now.
