Absolutely Molly!

Well . . . Aubrey, I've got something for those coworkers of yours. :bat:

:rofl3



Take tons of picutres, and then date them all. It's unreal to see how they go from eyelashes to monsters, in just a few months. :o:yikes

I'm too lazy to take pics and date them all. I figure I'll just post them here and it's automatically dated. :rofl

I fed him some brine shrimp but he is soooo little I can't quite tell if he's eating them. :rofl He would kinda hover then dart, hover then dart. I don't know if he was on the prowl or just figuring out who his new tank mates are. :rofl

Also, I can see some tiny tiny lil pectoral fins. :teehee

He asked about something that happened at school with Colin then went and changed his clothes. Finally at dinner he asked what it was. After I said it's a shrimp hatchery for the baby fish, he just went about getting his pizza without saying a word. :rofl

I think after 10 years of this GF business, getting rid of my 90 only to get a 75 a few years later, nothing surprises him anymore. :rofl3

This above is too cute. What a great husband you have Lisa. (made me laugh)

Your also "Lucky" you got lazy and didn't do that initial clean up/water change after not seeing the fry in the tank. He could have been unlucky and went down the drain. :yikes

Your Lucky Waldo was meant to be. Congratulations. I can't wait to see how he/she turns out.

You will know when his entire midsection turns bright orange! Lol!

Here he is at 3 days. I can see him open his mouth and I believe he has a belly full of brine shrimp. :teehee

Do Fantail fry not have dorsals or are we looking at a baby Ranchu here :idont

Well, the dorsal-less gene is weaker than the dorsal gene. Even 2 Ranchus won't produce all dorsal-less offspring. So, you may end up with a Nishiki fantail :nana

:thud That would be awesome! But I bet that calico pattern is recessive and I end up with a carbon copy of momma fish--orange ryukinish fantailish fish. :rofl

That's fine with me! :teehee

I highly doubt it will be a chu. Seems like Shawn said about half her fry were chus and BOTH parents were chus . . . :idont

Half the fun is not knowing what you'll get! :nana

I don't think any of them have dorsals. They grow in later, I *think*.

:rofl3

Isn't he cute? :wub:

Get Him Get him :rofl

I wanted to post this for Tammy. This is one if those plants I bought that I later found out should be grown partially emersed. I finally found a way to do it. :nana
