1 April 2012 (8 weeks/2 months)

Ok, massive post, this. It's my last batch of photos before I got sent away for 2 weeks to another state for work. :/ After that they're left in hands of my not-so-enthusiastic mum while I was gone...sad face.

Pics of unnamed jarred babies




Favourite #3! He's a real looker..black and lavender. Too bad he lost a tail spike so soon..:/








The next few pics are mainly of different individuals I jarred...



































Cain & Abel! Can you still tell them apart? xD





















Okayyyy. It's 5am now, I should really be sleeping. I'll continue with 14th April onwards on my next post. Enough of scrolling, my finger's starting to hurt...

Edit:
This is Cain at 7 weeks. Forgot to include it in my prev post.

Thanks, I can't wait to see how your spawns turn out too! I'll be stalking your thread.

I usually change at least 50% every day, the larger they get the more water I replace. So far I've only made around 4 - 5 full water change from the start. Sometimes I slack off a bit and change once in 2 or 3 days. But never more than 3 days. :)

You really hit the jack pot since this was meant to be only a learning experience. Great Job!

A little update. :) The babies are now officially adults at 3.5 months old. Got a whole bunch of black/reds, black and red cambodian butterflies, a cellophane and a handful of cambodian females. 90% turned out to be males..>_> About 80+ have been jarred weeks ago, while approx 30 of them, mainly females remain in their grow out tanks. You may imagine what it's like during a water change session, haha. No complaints though, it feels good to see them swimming in fresh, clean water!

I was away for 2 weeks on a working trip when they were 7 weeks old, and after I came back, noticed a few had nipped fins already..:/. Separated most of them immediately before I even unpacked my luggage, lol. My mum has given away a few to her colleagues. We've found an interested wholesaler who wants to look at them...but at the moment I'm putting it on hold. It's going to be hard to let go when the moment comes. :(

Some recent pics..

My lovely marble cellophane..my favourite of the bunch besides the marble butterflies. :)







Check this out, this guy has a double-triple ray..



















It's surprising to see so many marbles and butterflies in this spawn. Something I didn't expect..
