it's so cool how you can see the color of the BBs and his swim bladder!

How have you been doing the BBs? (in terms of getting the right amount for 1 fish in there?)

he's so tiny in that 1TBSP measuring spoon!!! (Funny thing is I have the same measuring spoon set that I use for fish stuff!)

Great pics once again! Thanks Fang. Since mine don't seem to want to make me a grandma, I must live vicariously through you! :teehee

Any names? :D

Not decided on anything yet since I don't wanna jinx him, but I keep thinking of Norman or Norma. :D

Umm... honestly I am just guessing :rofl

It doesn't seem like he over stuffs his like his parents would, probably because there is a steady supply of food. I just toss in a couple dozen BBS or so several times a day, and siphon out (turkey baster) whatever is laying around on the bottom uneaten ")

Yeah, I like this set because it is very simple and basic. And thank you! :D

He is an itty bitty fishy! :)

Have you told us about his parents yet? I can't remember! Sorry.

It's Banana and Bullet! Bullet surprised me a bit, because he is only about 8-9 months old, but he is growing so fast!

he's so tiny, and so cute!!!! I can't believe him swimming in that huge TBSP. Wherever did you find one the size of a swimming pool? :rofl

LOL I know, right? That betta cup he's in must feel like a pond to him, especially with "all the" plants in it, which is a 2.5" piece of cabomba and a little bit of duck weed and baby water lettuce. He loves chilling under the water lettuce's leaves, between the roots hanging down. :)

I have more photos from last night :D

The photos are a bit distorted from the rounded cup, and generally the little guy looks quite psychotic in most of the following pictures :rofl2

In the second photo you can really see his mouth. I love watching him slurp up BBS with that tiny sucker :D

The last photo shows his little double tail very nicely. So far no hint of a dorsal, pelvic or anal fin. At least not that I can make them out.

And look at that full belleh.

Look how much he's grown. You should compare the first photos with these, and be amazed!

I just compared him to the one egg with eyes in the other cup, and holy moly, he has gotten so much bigger, I didn't even realize it! He is still only... 1/4 or 1/3 of an inch long, but compared to the 1/16 diameter egg, it's crazy!

Absolutely. I can see a big difference in even just the daily shots. So thinking back to how it started, the difference is surely astounding.

When this is all done, you should make a compilation of fry photos, to show how they grow.

Nice idea, I might do that! I just wish my camera was better than it is. With the naked eye I can clearly see the tail. Unlike his parents' tails, the double tail does not seem merged at the top/middle, but two separate caudals. That's an improvement, I guess :rofl
