    They seem to be coming along great Nataley. Of course I'm not experienced, but hey! They are
    alive and growing so that looks good to me! LOL! Plus you got a DT out of the deal!

    Thanks Dave i cant believe how big they are getting now only being nearly 3 months old on the 9th May...the bigger ones are starting to pick on the smaller ones at meal times so il be moving the smaller ones into my 17 litre tank as soon as my filter has cycled havent got any old media for it Rolling Eyes unless i chop some off the sponge filter!!

    The little DT baby hasnt got a perfect tail split its kinda more to the top as you can see rather than the middle...that one is being kept and bred!!!

    Thank you im so happy with this spawn not all mine are the same colour i could pretty much tell that there was going to be reds and whites from around 4 weeks old. So probably a variation in colour.

    The DT was a suprise as its the only one that looks to be a double tail, defo a keeper whetever sex it turns out to be, as i will breed it with either mother or father after finding out if its male or female.

    Id say iv around 15 left there are a few tiny ones which probably wont survive to be adults.

    A shrimp is just a shrimp to them. How young they learn!

    I'd be weary of shrimps in the same tank if this has happened. They have spikes in the head that can lodge themselves in the fish's throat and make it impossible to recover the fish. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Blood worm feast!

    Just a couple of photos taken while giving my babies blood worm for the first time...the silver babies just looked at them and the red darker babies gobbled them up!!









    Look at the 2 babies either side looking right at the camera so cute!

    I can't see the vid Sad

    it's prob my net settings rather than the vid though, my browser has took a dislike to video clips.

    can everyone else see it ok?

    Today i noticed a chewed up dead body on the floor of the tank...i know one of the fry ripped the head off one of my shrimps so im thinking possible attack again!!!!

    So iv moved the 5 bigger fry into another tank so its just those together and the smaller fry can catch up in growth without competition from the bigger fry.

    Looks like 4 of the bigger fry may be girls i can see their ovi spots...but we'll see!!!
