This is so cool, I can't wait to see the fry grow up and start show their colouring.

I remember trying to teach myself snail genetics back in grade 7...nevertheless the three apple snails I purchased never bred and simply crawled out of their jars and died...I guess breeding betta appeal to me because then I could raise them from babies, but at the same time, I don't think I could handle the death and culling. But I do hope your current flock are coming along nicely!!

It must be so fascinating watching the fry grow. I am so looking forward to seeing more pictures of them as they grow up. Thanks for sharing we can all join in on the fun.:)

So I did an experiment with the smallest of my fry. I changed some of them into my no filter shrimp tank as there was plenty ot tiny organisms living there and I wanted to give them a chance to grow faster. The shrimps I have tolerate a high range of temperatures so that wasn't an issue I just gradually put the temperature higher until it was the same as the fry tank. I think I lost some in the process, it's hard to tell as there is plenty of hiding spots on the shrimp tank, but the ones that I find more than doubled in size. They are thriving and grew immensely after the transfer. The smallest ones I left on the fry tank seem to barely have grown, they still look about 1 to 2 weeks old. They will be 1 month old tomorrow.

Depends, some people separate them when they start flaring, others only when they start fin nipping. It's usually around 2 months old.

Starting to get a blue shine in a certain light. Need to invest in a proper camera as my phone isn't doing the trick.

The runt isn't the only runt, or even the smallest, no idea how they wil survive as I am starting with tubifex today.
