My 7/13 and 7/18 Tele/Lionchu/Oranda? babies

Recommended Posts

I asked a few fry questions earlier but thought I would start this thread to track my babies as they grow. My first two fry/eggs were found on 7/15 (since one was hatched I am assuming a 7/13-ish spawn). One was already hatched and the other hatched a few days later. Then on the 18th I caught my oranda in act of laying eggs and added them to my baby tank. The first two were mothered by either the same oranda or a lionchu that was being chased by my big telescope, but who knows.

These are from 7/15

I put a marker spot next to the fry so that I would have an easier time finding him with the camera.

These are from today (7/31)

This is one of the 7/13 babies next to one of the smaller 7/18 babies

The bigger 7/18 babies next to the runt. I am gong to give the runt a couple more days to see how it looks but it might end up being culled.

They are currently in 5 gallons of water, 6 inches deep with a sponge filter. I am doing water changes every other day, feeding 6 times a day and treating with prazi.I have 7 fry right now but depending how the 2 smaller ones do I might bring it down to 5. I am open to any suggestions :) Thanks for looking.

Hope those bigger ones don't eat the dots.

Do dots = smaller babies? I was thinking about getting a divider to keep the 2 monsters away from them.

Really? I played on them as a kid a few times. It was a lot of fun, except I could never get very far. Kind of like a unicycle, which I just can't comprehend people actually getting around on. When I was at college I remember there was a guy who rode his unicycle to all his classes ... carrying a backpack ... and smoking a cigarette! :rofl Unbelievable.

I am kind of a split tail snob and only one seems to have a good split. But they are fun and I'll be properly attached in no time :P they will most likely turn out all orange but my knowledge of goldfish genetics isn't that great.

Had their first blood worms yesterday. One managed to eat 2 big ones!

Eyelashes! Dang that's an adorable name. :wub:

And I'm surprised that the older ones are already little fat-bellied fantail-ish things!

Good job! :clapping:

Nice babies :). They colored up quickly. Mine are 4.5 weeks old now and even the biggest ones are still tan and grey :).

The parents are most likely my big orange telescope (male) he was the only one doing the chasing. And the mom is either the big white/orange Thai Lionchu or my fat orange oranda. Both females were being chased that week. Both big babies are still brown/green fry colored.

I was going to dump out a bucket that used to have water lettuce in it but just before I dumped it I saw something move in the bucket and it was full of fry! There must have been some eggs on the lettuce when I took it outside. I brought in 5 tiny fry. There must have been something to eat in there but the lettuce had been in ther for a least a couple of weeks (and in extreme heat). Those babies have grown a bit since I brought them in but are still MUCH smaller than the ones that have been inside all along.

The 2 big babies are about a month old. The smaller on in the left side of the tank with them was found in a 5 gallon bucket outside and is about a week younger. The fry on the right side of the tank were found in the bucket too, but they are a lot smaller than the others.

and the nasty bucket the tiny ones came from, they were out in the 100+ degree weather for at least 2 weeks before I found them
