I picked some of these up at a club meeting a few months back. I'm happy to say I have at least 15 fry swimming around in the tank now. The original trio are extremely shy and hardly ever come out from cover in the plants but the fry are happily swimming around. I hope they stay extroverted when they mature.

Post subject:  feeding the fry

I started up my old brine shrimp hatchery and started feeding these fry live food. They sure love them. I add the shrimp to the tank in the same location all the time. The fry pretty much hang out there now waiting. I still feed them flake food also but they don't get quite so excited over that. The adult fish are acting a little less shy lately. I'm hoping I can get some photos of them for the clubs picture contest.

Post subject:  another spawn

I spotted some new fry in the tank. I counted 5 but they are hard to see unless they move. The first batch of fry are doing fine, growing fast. It wont be long before I bring some of these in to the club auction. More BAP points for me.

Third round of spawning. Tank is getting crowded with fry. They like daphnia.
