I have now completely given up on my grow up tank and added the healthy fry to the shrimp tank. Culled all fry that were laying on their sides and unable to swim properly. Down to about 50 fry.

6 week old update. Fry have ick but seem to be responding well to heat treatment.

Now I know my blue male had some red, I knew that there was a possibility of MG showing up, but in all honesty I wasn't expecting it, I still am not expecting it. Having said it I am starting to see some MG looking fry, but I am not getting my hopes up.

Some fry are starting to show yellow on the fins, near their bodies and then a clear blue line on the outside on their fins. I am wondering if this yellow might eventually turn red.

The yellow is turning to red now tho. There are 2 that are smaller than the others but extra long that are remaining a greyish silver colour with little green/blue sparkles in the light. We will see I guess. I have caught quite a few flaring already :)

Will wait as long as possible to jar as they are F1 and I have no intention to take them on shows.


On another news I have some new eggs cooking on the nest again

Same daddy but the female is a white platinum VT female with blue iridescent, goal is to hopefully increase the iridescent and maybe bring up some potential marbles as according to the females breeder she has the marble genome.

The tricolour fish (last 3 pictures) is a new male I bought, he is still young only 3 months old but I will cross him when more mature to a female that is already with me but I'll be keeping that a surprise

Lots of future plans as you see, let me know what you think.
