    My pair spawned today, the number of eggs seems to be enormous. Here is one shot from the spawning.

    Don't know the reason but lost the whole spawn on a second day of free swimming. They were dying one after another, my theory is that poor quality airstone leached soimething to the water.
    Today the male spawned again, this time with red dragon female.

    I spawned the pair of whites again. This time watching water parameters all the time...
    Very good results. Kill me but I won't tell you how old the fry are at the moment, I was so busy recently that I can't remember things like that.
    To date I have seen in total only 4 died fry so survival rate is excellent so far. Pictured whilst feeding on decap off the bottom.

    I fed them bbs from day 5 but now they are happy to eat decap and two days ago I introduced some micro granular I buy from friends who work at university in aquaculture lab. Ocasionally I give them microworms.

    any sign of red ventrals etc. or do you think you're getting mostly pure white?

    I can see some red on ventral and anal fish, some fish are pure white. Can't wait them growing a bit more and see all the colours.

    I split them today in to two tanks. I just counted those I moved and it was 70 fish - looks like more left in original tank so I must have underestimated the number of fry I think that I have 170-180.
