Don't steal mah babies!! LOL!
Thanks guys! I've been overprotective of these little ones. They started getting water changes at 6 days after free swimming and I've only used mws twice because I don't want them to hang out at the bottom where the bacteria is. Half of my last spawn didn't have pectorals because of that.
They are looking really good and I have high hopes for them so we'll see what we end up with :)

They are beautiful. My are almost 6 weeks but they just begun showing some sign of color.

My BBS swim and eventually sink to the bottom so my fries also hang out on the bottom. I feed MW + Decap and Instant BBS for 4 weeks but most of all of my fries seem to have pectoral fins. I switch to feed live bbs, and after the switch I think fries grow faster with live bbs.

How adorable! I can't believe those little brown babies turn into such fluffy, colorful adults :)

Thank you!
These kids are growing nicely.
They are 2.5 weeks not and you can alredy see who's going to be a multi and who is going to be light colored.
I love that their fins are all visible now but they are not very good posers and swim away when they see the camera.
Here is today's pic spam...

Nice full tummies. They are looking wonderful... I might have to take a little trip to Washington to help myself LOL. According to Google, it's "only" 17 1/2 hours!

Thanks!
These are the hardiest group of fry I've seen.
They take the daily water changes like champs and I haven't lost one fry since they hatched. They took to eating grindals without hesitation! Still there's a long way to go and I hope I didn't just jinx it but they've been doing great so far.
I can't stop myself from taking pics so here's today's... I think there's a readhead in the mix!

I wish I could buy some from you when they get older. They look so nice!
