Hello to all :) Its been a good month or so since I wrote last about my one survival fry.

Hes gotten a lot bigger and now he is in his own 10gal tank with 4 snails. Hes a lil over half an inch now!!! YAY! I still have a heater in there so the temp stays at a nice 78*f, and hes doing awesome :) I'm going to try to get some pics of him, he was hatched May 24th, so hes about 3 1/2 months now....seems like its been forever since he was a lil stick with eyes :rolleyes: I'll try to post some pics tonight!

*Lizzy*

How are your fry doing? If I remember right, they were hatched the same day mine were, or atleast pretty close to it! How many are left outta that batch?

HOOORAY!!!!! ***does happy dance***

I'm trying to get more pics but it keeps telling me its too big of a file.... oh well, I'm gonna keep trying. I haven't thought of a name for him yet...or her. I'm still suprised its lived this long :) On teh 24th it'll be 4 months...and I believe after like 6 months you're pretty much in the clear...Hes doing really good now, a whole 10gal to himself...with his 4 snail buddies :) I'm gonna try to resize the other pic I have....hope it works :)

I guess thats the last one...The computer no matter how small I make the last pic won't let me post it... <_< No worries tho! I will be borrowing the digi-cam some more this week and get a lot of pics! :)

Coyote Ugly ~ Thanks! I feed him a ton of food, and I dont have to worry so much for the wasted food cuz my snails eat it up, and I bought him freeze-dried daphnia, baby brine shrimp, and I give him pretty much any kind of food he'll eat! I found frozen beef heart...I was disturbed a lil by it, but the fish all love it :) How are your 2 fry doing? Well, not technically fry...but your babies :) lol

That is great to feed a variety of foods.You might want to give a bit of peas once in a while to prevent constipation...he'll love it.I feed mine a variety of foods too but have never tried beef heart....is it good for the fish?

My babies are 10 months old now and they are just starting to recover from a very bad case of finrot.I was worried I was gonna lose them both but it seems like their on the mend!Thanks for your concern :)

Keep us updated of your fry...I would love to see what he'll turn into when he grows up :D Good luck!

I'm sorry to hear about your babies...wow, 10 months, Have you got any recent pics of them?

I have no idea if the beefheart is good or not for them, but it said to feed it to chiclids (sp?) and oscars, so I don't think it'll be too bad.

I haven't fed him peas yet, but I do give him spirulina flakes every other day. I think those help the fish from getting constipated, but I'm not too sure.

Their tails are really tattered :( I just hope they recover soon...I can't stop worrying about them.

Went to our LFS today but didn't find any beef heart....they looked at me like I was looking for something weird :huh: They are sooo not friendly!

They got so big and cute :heart Their tails don't look like their too bad. With you taking care of them they'll be better in no time :)

The only place I have been able to find beefheart was at a family ran Petshop by my house, no one else seems to carry it :(

I'm going to see about borrowing my b/f's camara again so I can get some more better looking pics of my fry
