Oh I have LOTS of blues...but none are displaying the EE trait. I have some four day olds by the same mom, different father, however. Maybe one of those will have the EE trait. I'll offer fry here when old enough, and take the leftovers to work!

Haha, no problem! I was just curious because now I know that my fry are 1 and a couple days older!

Your fry are adorable!
I don't see a half caudal? I only see a full one..

You can call me Blu for short!

I mean later during the day, I noticed one of the fry was missing a chunk of its caudal. Little buggers are already bickering!

Here's the father of the four day old spawn with the same female. Might get a lot more blues out of him, compared to this spawn. Although he's a fancy as well, he's predominantly blue, and has better form than the white male. The blues from this spawn have a lot of green in them anyway, not a whole lot of dark blues.

Six Weeks Old

Babies are officially six weeks old! Man, I love these little guys! The biggest are just barely an inch, the smallest 1/2 an inch. I am not sure how I'm going to part with any of them! There are 43 babies in this particular spawn by the way, not sure if I already mentioned that or not.

If anyone ends up wanting one, it'll be $5 for females, $10 for males, plus shipping. Not really looking to make money off these guys, so I will definitely work with people with the price if it's a bit much for some. The ones I don't sell online will be going to the store. And of course, I'll be keeping some. It's still early, so plenty of time to decide if you're interested in a baby. They all carry the EE gene, but I'm not seeing it yet in any of the babies.

Here's some pictures of them at six weeks of age!

7 weeks old

Well the fry are now 7 weeks old, and thriving. I have decided to keep most, if not all, of the females from this spawn. The reason why is because they are so healthy and robust. I have never seen such a healthy spawn in my life. My other spawns I have going at the moment are fairly healthy, but I do see deaths once in awhile, or deformities. I have not had any deaths or deformities or disease (The 3 D's lol) in these fry since they started free swimming, and they are bigger at 7 weeks and 2 days than I have ever seen or heard of before. It can't be due to my vigilance, since as I said, the fry from my other spawns do have the occasional death, and are not growing nearly as fast as this spawn, so I am assuming it is in their genetics. I've also had to cull about 10 fry from my purple/black hmpk spawn that had crooked spines. I believe that may be because the mom is DT. It's made me really rethink spawning DTs. I do have about 100 healthy fry from that spawn, but culling is so depressing. MY single tail spawns have never produced deformities.
I need healthy robust females. I am sick of spending a fortune on females only to have them drop dead on me out of nowhere, for no apparent reason. So I will keep the females from this spawn, and hope that any spawns I get from them will be as healthy. I'll probably keep a few males as well. Luckily working for a tropical fish store has its perks, as I have access to a lot of supplies for cheap/free that otherwise wouldn't be available to me, so I am able to keep large amounts of fish. Plus I can always keep fish at the store if I needed to.
If there's any interest I will create a spawn log on my other two spawns I have going, but if not, I'll just stick to updating this one every once in a while.
The other spawns are two weeks and four weeks of age.
I have only one fish from this spawn that I think may take after dads coloring. Well, maybe. It started off as brown, then turned cambodian, then the red fins darkened to black, the body lightened to white, and now is a cello. I'm pretty sure it won't stay cello, and I am hoping he/she will start coloring up again soon. If not, I may have to incorporate it in a koi pairing I have coming up soon.
Here is a picture of this spawn's current home. It's a 20 long with a sponge filter at either end, a heater, a small piece of driftwood, and lots of guppy grass, java moss, and a moss ball.

Cello

Here are a few progression photos of my cello guy just from this last week, to give you an idea of how what color loss looks like. I know most people on here have already seen that for themselves, but I find it interesting and maybe someone else will find it interesting as well. :) I wish I knew where the pictures from when his fins were red were. I would have to really dig to find them though :/

And now some other babies from this spawn! And by the way, if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I am a bit scatter brained, and sometimes I forget to include information.
Sorry about having so many pictures. I can never decide what pictures to post. I take so many...I very much enjoy my fish :)

Just for reference, the largest are about the size of the average young female you would find for sale at petco. The smallest are a bit bigger than the average petco baby
