update fish now pass 4 month age. they grow well. there are a few problems but I think they are normal.

beastyboy is the biggest others follows. beastboy was showing some problems with balance and has has diet change and move to bigger tank to see if that helps. Phantom is showing float signs and I do not know how to fix that but will try . the rest of the group are not far behind ( a month) in growth.

Beasty Boy now at 27 grams

Phantom struggles with float problems but is still hanging in there.

Could try housing them with only about 1 foot or so of water... you know like a tank not all the way filled with water. Lower the pressure on them. Sometimes this helps with fish that are tall in height while growing up :)

i have very little positive results with baby and young fish that become floaters. but this one has special interest ( it has a name and owner all ready) and wish very much that it can be recovered. I have tried a few things but no positive results yet.

It has been taken off of the bloodworm and hi pro diet and is now today in with beastyboy in tank where the diet can be controled. I have several flat growout tanks that could be used for shallow water , just have to kick out the guppys. .

telescope butterfly , age 6 months

now we see video of them feeding on vegatable pills . many have defects and show a vast mix of color from tiger calico to black (but changing to white , panda?). the all whites with gross black eye globes are a delight although I think are weaker than the others overall.

no sign of sex differences that I can see yet so i just call them all females!!

Great teles, Michael! :)

so far they are comming along OK, and the parents are all still alive at friend Antonios so maybe we will breed some of these babys back to parents, and the rest as 1st generation cross and see what happens. Also are awaiting this years incoming shippment as it is late . In fact just today got rid of all remaining outside guppy and now tanks cleanup begin .

are they all from the same spawn?

no , 3 spawns total 2 females , 4 males ( see first post in this topic and this link http://www.kokosgold...ils-from-china/ )

what size tank are they in now?

currently in the bred tank of 100 l

how many are they??

today are now down to abut 15 but 3 or 4 must go soon.

I would love to have them all

if you make it all the way out here you can have some.

thanks for sharing with us my day is now complete

mine too now that the puppies begin to eat solid food.
