@Everyone: Thank you for the positive feedback! I enjoy to read your suggestions and opinions ect.
@MrVampire181: Will Do!
Update 8:00PM 3/1/12:
They are not free swimming yet, but they should be at this time tomorrow(8:14-9:00pm eastern time)
The male is still tending to the nest and doing an amazing job as well. I rarely see wrigglers. They are just stiff little tails sticking out of the nest and I dont see any beady little eyes yet LOL. I have only seen two fall out of the nest and one has managed to get himself back up from midway of the 5 inches in tank water so far. So as I have said before, They are REALLY strong fry and I think they are going to be amazing! It will be interesting to see some nice light ones as well.
I really hope to see them with very fat stomach's by Tuesday since I always start feeding in exactly one week. By this time they are very carnivorous and their instinct to eat is already present.
I also dont want to bore you guys.
So what I did was I wanted to post more pictures. These are pictures of the pair when I first opened the bag, then the fry. I am going to show the fry pictures with a circle around so it is easier to spot.
So here is the pair just opening the bag.
(She was the hardest to get pictures of!)
The male wasn't too fond of the camera either so I only got one of the male.
BUT...I did manage to get a really nice video of the pair with my camera. The female is in the mason jar and the male was ALREADY trying to get her under the IAL while she was in the jar and that was when I first let them see each other after conditioning.I will post the video once it uploads to Photobucket as well as the pictures of the fry.
I am very excited about this spawn and cant wait to see results, but really want to make sure that they are perfect size.
Again, I didnt want to bore you guys too much since there isnt many exciting things happening yet.
