I've had a couple cherry culls berry at that size, but all of them dropped the eggs within a week. Only with my cherry culls though-- my orange neos and FPR offspring from the same period aren't even saddling yet.
Hmm, seems to go along with the fact that my blue velvets are growing much slower than my regular red rilis, and are in general much smaller than the reds, even the reds that are significantly younger than them. I've been seeing the beginnings of saddles of the blues as well. Hmm...pygmy shrimp? Haha, I wonder how their growth rate and size could be improved to match my reds
