congrats on all the fry! thats most excellent. i have lost a few after the week point. but i don't think you will lose any. if your camera can i'd love to see the little guys.

a couple teasers for you
(the first one is a video)

Got some shots of the fry with my iPhone today. They turn 2wks today. I should make them a brine shrimp cake or something.

As Spawn1 hit the three week mark I collected some of Spawn3. Just like with the first spawn, I carefully removed most of the eggs with the back of an exacto knife blade and placed them in a net breeder in the tank they've been spawned in. I leave some eggs behind for the male to keep watch over. It might not be necessary, but it's what I do. I expect Spawn3 to hatch within 24 hours.

Once they hatch, I'll carefully siphon them out and move them to the fry tank where they can spend a month or two getting big enough to eat something bigger than bbs.

I might move the female out of the tank after this to give the male a break from keeping eggs.

Got some shots of the July 5th hatching group this morning. They've got all their fins fully developed and you can really see their tail spot. Friday 8/9 will be the 5 wk mark, and just about halfway to being able to sex them.

For those that were looking for gudgeons check back in October.

Yeah these buggers are too small and fast for me to sex, but the photos made me think I could sex them. Thanks!
