    The big fry look quite big in length how long would you say your biggest fry are?

    Mine take whole blood worm, the only thing is if it doesnt eat it fast enough another fry grabs the other end and so its a tug-o-war over the food.

    The big blue one is beautiful...can you sex yours yet? Im not overally sure yet.

    Keep up the good work they all look great Very Happy

    cheers nat Smile

    the ones ive jarred upto yet i think are male..but they were just the most agressive ones with the biggest finnage so i took a guess..some of the fry have a visible white spot and are no so aggressive although they do squabble Smile

    have a close looks at the ray count.. were parents hm, pk or hmpk?

    I ask as the first two girls look pk but others look like they have wider and 'fluffy' hm type tails as well as straight edges even in the blurry pics.

    last girl and marble above def has hm/sd finnage but marble also shows a decent dorsal so could be either dt genes somewhere or she's more hmpk

    green looks hmpk male (guessing with whats visible in pic)

    This is the biggest prob with genes, when crossed it's hard to categorise apart from looks and offspring if not line bred to be stabilised won't give consistant fry/tail types.

    They are looking fit and healthy and I do think you will have many fry with potential should you choose to breed a next generation

    mum and dad certainly are hm but will be interesting how all the fry turn out....( anyone who knows van and netty on paradise will remember their spawns that gave them all sorts even in next generations)

    looking forward to the vids.... that is the issue with marble... one minute they look like this then they look like that... hard work sometimes if you are selling them, picture may not look like the same fish on delivery but they are fascinating!
