Sorry, accidentally posted a couple of pics twice in my previous post. Can't edit it since the 20 mins time limit is up. I'm tired of scrolling too, I know..

First complete water change! Took these pics, thought I count them all to the exact number..in the end I just couldn't make myself do it, lol. Too tedious, too many of them..@_@





This stage is also the first time I messed up a bit with this spawn. Few days prior I bought myself a Chinese Algae Eater to clean up the debris on the glass. They looked harmless because they were so small and well, they did look like good suckers and they sounded like one, and they're prettier than the regular pleco. That was a blunder that costed me 5 fry. While he smootched the glass squeaky clean, he also moved very violently and fast. When I attempted to fish him out during my full water change, he trashed around..immediately after that a few of my fry started to go belly up and were dead minutes later. I suspect they got squished somehow in the process. ._. Before this I had only lost 1-2 other fry from the day of hatching. So now casualty is up to 7. ^^;; I didn't dare to put the algae eater back in after that and replaced him with a real pleco. The pleco is still here today and is doing a great job cleaning my tank without hurting the juvvies. :)

At this point I've started them on micropellets and tiny pieces of frozen bloodworms.

The day I jarred my first two boys. Meet Cain and Abel, because they seem to hate each other, lol. Abel is the one with the blue streaks in his tail. They now head my favourites list. :)





















Rest of the juvvies during 3rd full water change

Jarred 10 more...at this point I was just grabbing whatever containers I could get my hands on, lol. Starting to see nipped tail spikes and fins... :/

The "grown ups". Mom and Dad on the top left and top second. The dead looking ones at the bottom are my SBD fry from the first spawn. They're only alive when I drop them some pellets. Wouldn't take any bloodworms. :( I've decided to culled them a few days back.


The babies...
