    Thats what i thought but could it be just bubbles from when the baby has come up for air as the water is still...i haven't had one since though.

    Photo update 7/6/2011

    The fry are 4 months old in 2 days time.

    The babies in the small tank have grown so much that they need to get jarred very soon as nipping is one of there fun activities they do everyday...i really dont like nipped fins/tail!!

    This one is my favourite from the smaller batch it's got all the colours of the fry in the spawn beautiful...

    LOL! would be a good name but im trying to not name them as i wont be able to let them go! Shocked

    Iv named the 2 that im keeping and a maybe im keeping but iv got 10 jarred at the mo 2 of them im definately keeping and 1 of the smalls is a maybe (Rainbow!) iv 15 fry altogether so if im keeping 3 its not so bad. Rolling Eyes

    Im rethinking my jarring system too, thinking the bottles arent that good idea for me as my lid is rubbish and doesnt fit on so good...so im thinking of making individual sections made from clear perspex and silicone, drill small holes so the water isnt stagnant like it is in the bottles. Im a little unsure what type of filter to use though as a spray bar wouldnt work really as it would only reach one side of the sectioned tanks.

    Any suggestions would be great on the filteration side of things.

    The eye shadow one doesnt have a visible ovi spot, but ventrals and finnage are short, so not sure, only recently moved from small tank about 2 weeks ago so not as grown up as say the one im keeping or the copper.

    Its only known as 'runt' as i thought it wouldnt grow up but proved me wrong and i guess name has stuck!
