    Thanks swords Not really sure why, but I took a video today. They have already eaten, but it's a neat little tour of the tank. It does a really good job of sizing them for you.

    Great looking fry tank Andrew! No wonder those killies are doing so well . Looks like the plants, snails, and shrimp are also healthy and growing.

    Just an observation: those young fish look like they want more food. This is about the time I usually start increasing the amount of BBS I put in the tank. Ideally you want the bellies of the fry to be bulging. Otherwise everything looks perfect.

    I have a feeling you will be posting about needing to reduce the population of rapidly growing fish in the next couple of weeks.

    Thanks for the tip Duane! Surely you mean when they're done eating and not always right? The above was a couple hours after I fed- here is shortly after the afternoon feed:

    I just realized I'm late on the update... so these are really super quick but really don't show much change. I manged to catch some color on one of their gills, and also finally managed to snap a picture of my "broken" fish. haha

    Thanks for the update Andrew! How big are the largest fish now? Perhaps time to start them on small frozen bloodworms. That bent spine fish needs to go to fishy heaven (the breeder you got those eggs from sold you some damaged goods ). You will have colorful males in no time. Keep us posted.

    Hi Duane, I'm really having a hard time deciding on a size to say. I have one fish that is definitely the largest (about center photo) and another that is not far behind that one. But most are fairly small I think. I knew that one fish didn't look quite right, but I could never get a decent photo of him to see what the deal was before that. I will send him to visit his ancestors.

    PS- strangely my tropica fern (lower left corner) I tossed in this tank is finally showing some new growth.
