    Congrats on the fry, Andrew! That's a great looking rearing tank also. Raising and feeding 6 fry should be a cakewalk compared to the 20+ you raised earlier. Best of luck with the new species.

    One day shy of 2 weeks old.

    Guess I'll also update, I have 5 swimmers last I saw them all out (they like to hide in all that moss) and a couple belly sliders (fish that hatched too early and can not swim properly...) I sucked up all the peat about a week after hatching and checked through it and found more eggs "eyes up" so I put it back into storage and will rewet it 3 weeks from when I dried it to make sure I'm going to have enough girls for a good breeding tank.

    So, sorry I've been slack on updates... I ended having 4 boys and 2 girls... a few days ago, my largest male became a belly slider... I also found that one of my girls had eggs and was ready to breed so I put a peat bowl in there.

    Back tracking some, since the hatch rate was so low on these guys I AGAIN dried the peat for another month and rewet it (as mentioned in prior post)... so I have another tank with about 16 fish in it that are one month behind these. this tank is just now starting to color up so as soon as I can put them all together I will be wetting a bag of peat of the fish I first raised. I'll try to get some pics up of these guys soon.
