AWESOME!!! I just asked on the 911 thread. Been checking on here umpteen times today, was hoping for an update before I go into the yawning abyss that is Walmart. Nay, though I walk through the valley of the black Friday sale, I will fear no fat housewife. :D

Everyone is still doing well. I lost a few babies (down to 12) =( But the ones that are still here seem to be doing well. Water changes are of course helping a lot too! Pictures later =)

Well 12 is a good number, before long they'll be eating you out of house and home.

I'm actually in the process of uploading pictures but my phone is being stupid =/ They're all doing well. I did a water change and the little babies got all excited. Bill has developed a dorsal fin. He's growing up so fast.

I love his itty bitty fins. I can see his other fins coming in as well but they don't hardly show up in pictures. I know the other babies are sooooo little. I want them to start growing up!

LOL!! I really would love to raise fry again. My kids were only like 3 and 4 when I had fry so they don't remember. I think it would be a great experience for them. Well except for the fact that so many of them die in the beginning. It's so fun to watch them grow though! :heart

The dying part freaks me out! Idk if I could handle. I had Mr. Common, my fair koi for 3 days when he passed and I cried for 2 days. Dead babies??? I'd have to be thorazined.

Oh and my husband now thinks I'm crazy-er. I just showed him pics of Little Bill, I'm like look it's my godson!

I send a pic of Little Bill to my boyfriend everyday. Here's your grandfish! and he just says ok? haha he's soo not into fish.

Oddly, the dead babies thing is a lot easier to take than losing an adult fish. You can't possibly have a personal bond with each fry so when they die it is a little easier to handle. I just kind of say i'm sorry that you didn't get a chance to grow up and it's over. Now that I'm down to a small amount though it is getting harder to say good bye. There's a few little ones that I know aren't going to make it (weird deformities) and it just breaks my heart. And don't even get me started on what happens if Little Bill doesn't make it...
