Finley & Franklin's First Fry

Recommended Posts

Couldn't see the video but you will have single tails in every spawning. It is the original tail and there will always be a throwback mutation. Some of those single tail teles are quite the site though :)

Started another round of prazi tonight along with the parents' tank, but I will use aged tap water instead of water from the parents' tank for awhile now, since the parents' water is salted at .01%.

I have ordered brine shrimp eggs from a few different sellers, and the one I used tonight barely hatched any! :o This is a scary part for me, since the next batch won't be ready until tomorrow morning, and I hate for there to not be enough food available. I may put in a little of the Spawn & Grow, I just hate how cloudy it makes the water.

Interestingly, there was a new baby in with the parents again today, but I know the size difference would be too great at this point.

These guys are getting HUGE! :flex:

Sounds like your babies are growing well....any new pics ? :). Could you mix up a batch of Spawn and Grow and let it gelatinize and then feed the babies a little square?...mine like to peck at the cubes...even my tiny ones are able to peck tiny pieces off (like algae off a plant root). That way it can stay in the water longer without making the water yucky and you can take it out when you want.

Why didn't I think of that? :lol3 That's a great idea, thanks!

I'll try to get either pics or a video up by tonight! :) Probably due to the inordinate amount of time I spend scrutinizing them, I can tell some of them apart! :o

Found a better setting on my camera! :nana

These are all pre-water change, sorry for the cruddies - I just had a chance to take pictures earlier today and I'm getting ready to do the wc right now. :)

The smallest and the biggest with the dime for scale.

This one has a pretty tail, and is that scales?

Thank you :) I thought so too, but I couldn't remember if that lines up with the age they are - it must!

Thank you. Yes he's great - super happy and observant. Also chunky. :teehee

Cute babies...thanks for sharing :)

Thank you both. :)

I notice tonight there are a couple that really aren't the go-getters I think they should be at meal time. I guess in a way I'm glad to see it now, so that I can mentally prepare myself. It isn't for lack of food - they just don't really open their mouths very much or seek out the food like the others. Also a couple have a bit of a notch in the middle of their dorsals, so it will be interesting to see what happens with those too.

I decided I want to try the sponge filter, not to replace water changes, but to try to keep the water more clear in between. It's dialed down so low though, I don't know if it will really do much. :rolleyes:

I had a little change of plans today. I discovered the caulk is separating from the glass in a couple spots on the 10 gallon tank I had these guys in! :o I don't know if it just happened today when I was cleaning the tank or what, but I really didn't feel comfortable moving them back in. So - I moved Finley and Franklin into the 60 gallon so I could put the fry in the 29 gallon. The water level is still low though, around 3.5". I could slap me - I forgot to put white paper and the dime back down first! I was able to slip some paper under in one spot, but it doesn't cover the whole bottom. :rolleyes: The sponge filter was unimpressive, so I didn't put that back in today. I did keep the Fluval moss rocks that were in this tank with the parents, and it is so cute to see the fry pecking at them. :heart

Without further ado...

My favorite is the lighter colored one with the pretty tail, on screen at :14 and again at :37. :)

Acclimating, since I had to add a lot of water that wasn't aged.
