    LOL!

    I have WRIGGLERS im so happy...they arent horizontal yet but when falling from the nest they are wiggling back up or dads catching them and putting them back. The fry are looking dark in colour already...i suppose as mum and dad are dark thats why.

    Look at these 2 stuck on the front of the tank

    Sounds like a well deserved break and he should get a pat on the dorsal. He did his job and
    now its your turn.

    Iv removed the male now he's looking very tired and he was thankful of the pellets i gave him he gobbled them up right away!

    The fry are pretty much all horizontally swimming so will give them the egg yolk mixture iv made, put it in my little spray bottle i bought...so its over to me i guess now!

    Unfortunately dad passed away i found him dead this morning, he'd been looking very depressed since i removed him from his babies Sad

    Today after i got in from work i moved the babies from the 7 litre tank into the 40 litre grow out tank.
