Updated pics as of today.I see three in the breeder and two out in the main tank.I think the fourth one just stays in the moss.

You can see the bbs hatcher in the back,I decided it was hatching way too slow at room temp so i placed it in there in hopes it would hatch faster.

The stripes are adorable hehe!

All ready a nice dark brown color,and the fins seem to be growing in pretty fast.

I am offering golden pearls at the next feeding with the bbs.I am going to try to get them on it really fast.Would be easier on me and them as I can feed more often.

Think so?I suppose its not uncommon for more to pop up.Ive noticed only two in the main tank at any given moment.Shoot more than six would be a dream come true!

Ill have to look

I have removed a good bit of the water,and caught them all,placed them in the breeder trap as I saw three who didnt seem to be getting enough to eat,and removed the substrate to help with cleaning.I an currently dripping a gallon and a half of fresh water daily in the tank to help with growth and of course the canister is going full blast.

One is showing some nice color along his anal fin!

Awsomesauce! I have 6 tank rasied macs coming next Wednesday (Thank you Sam) and hope they do so well. Their tank for a while will be a 20 long with lots of plans, driftwood, moderate waterflow with a ph of 6.9, TDS 120 ppm, and temp of 74F. I figure I'll have a 20 long for each pair I can identify. In a perfect world I'll have three pair, but well see how they grow out.

I'll post some pics once they've settled in.

Sounds awesome!

Sams fish are gorgeous!The father of these fry is a brother of the fish your getting so that should show how awesome they look.He has the perfect docile personality,without taking too much slack from the female.

Some are getting color in their anal fins,so cute!Someone asked if thats a sign of male/female.I said ive no idea but i suppose its possible.Would be really neat for them to be two weeks old and showing mature colors.

ANy thoughts?
