My Christmas gift to the babies was a tub clean and a round of Prazi. I'm sure they appreciated it. ;)

Well the fry and now 1 month, 5 days old. I have about half of what I started with. I've been losing about half a dozen a day to an unknown reason, although I think it's got a lot to do with the larger fry chomping off the tails of the smaller ones...

Here they are:

I was advised to cull the smaller ones, but I couldn't do it. The larger ones are doing it for me.

Another update. As you can see, there are far fewer and they vary in size.

Here is a shot of some of the larger ones.

Ooooh they're getting big!

I have to admit that the word cull wasn't in my vocabulary either. But you don't need 100 goldfish - although it sounds like the Koko's gang would be more than happy to take a few off your hands..... :rolleyes:

...nature is taking its course, apparently.

Best of luck with the young 'uns.

Thank you. :) Nature is taking it's course. I find one it two dead small fry a day. They've had their tails munched off. :(

Its survival of the fittest (or biggest) unfortunately.

I had hundreds of fry and end up with so few. ..

Things might be different for me next season, now I have my rake setup.

Hopefully yours turn out nice n fat and well developed.

I'm feeding them Repashy Spawn & Grow. Soon I will start them on bloodworms too, they're just a little too small.

If you still do end up with to many you could cull them, just cull the ones with deformities or tails that arent show type just to thin it out

So... I performed my version of a cull. I collected the smaller fish and let them go in a local pond. lol - I couldn't bring myself to kill them. This way, at least they have a fighting chance.

Here is a photo of the remaining fry.

I think I'll perform another 'cull' next week. I wasn't very harsh this time.

Hello!

They are doing very well. Proper little fish in their own right.

I had to euthanize their mother die to swim bladder disease, so they are even more special to me. I'm hoping one will look like her. ❤

So sorry to hear about their Mom. I think she left a very nice legacy.
