Very cool, I'm gonna follow this topic!
Have you moved to the 1/4 tsp yet?
Nope! They probably will within the week however.
They're a little over two weeks now and I can see the dorsal beginning to form and their tails are getting so long. They're now in about 3 gallons of water (the cup pictures were during a waterchange).
Wow that's an awesome defined eye! Looks like the colour is starting to form.
Yea I'm assuming they'll both be orange because I know nothing about goldfish genetics but I assume orange is dominant. Since their father was a common and their mother was a calico ryukin I'm curious to find out what hey end up like.
The one you showed looks like a pinkie actually.
How fun reading that was! Great thread. You are doing a wonderful job at raising your babies! I love watching them out grow the spoon.
They've now moved up to micro pellets! I'l get a video later today
I think they are three weeks and four days old? If I remember correctly they hatched may 10th. They're so cute! I have pictures and a video.
They don't fit into the 1/8th anymore!
Moved them up to 1tsp!
In a tiny cup during their water change.
Nomming on micro pellets.
Oh wow! Congratulations on your gorgeous babies
Found one of my fry dead this morning. no signs of illness or injury.
Was it the really pink one?
Yes it was the one with the button eyes. Pretty sure the one Iabeled fry one.
oh no! well fingers crossed the other one survives. <3
Have you prazi'd these fry yet? I think it's prudent if there has been a sudden death. You usually wait around the 2 wks mark to prazi which I think yours is right around right?
Also I'm sorry for your fry loss It would've been a beautiful fish)
They started prazipro at two weeks :/ I was thinking maybe he choked if that's even possible because I found him right next to a micro pellet from the night before.
oh no! sorry for your loss
The good news is the remaining fry is still growing and healthy. I've started him or her on finely crushed progold. C:
Wish the best for your goldfish
My little fry is doing really well! Feeding mostly crushed progold, micropellets, and .5mm NLS.
He's moved up to a 10gal (the cup was during waterchange time) any clue as to what color he'll end up?
That's really adorable ♥
I'm sorry about the fry that you lost.
Your big guy looks great! :)
