Can't wait to see how they mature! :)

Aww thank you so much!! :D

There are only a few so there's no guarantee I'll have any to watch grow, but even still this part is really cool!! :)

We finally have a Myrtle! :rofl

Here she is, in a 1/4 teaspoon. :P

They are okay with some bubbles now, right? I didn't even put in an airstone, just the tubing attached to the valve for the main tank. Yes/no?

Ps: BBS are staaaanky when there is no filtration! :yikes

I had an airstone at about 1 week old. Just make sure they can handle the "current". :rofl. The air pump I used wasn't all that powerful but I still used an air control valve. At first you could practically count the bubbles coming out. :rofl. I was worried the flow would stress or tire him out. :teehee. Then I slowly increased it. :)

Yay for Myrtle and NotMyrtle!! :lisa:

Haha well you scared me so I turned the bubbles down. :rofl they seem okay with it, and it's only on one side not facing the middle too much. Before it was like, poppoppop pop bubblepop but now I can count them if I want to :rofl

I've been thinking "Myrtle's Backup" but that's just morbid and not very nice. :peeka I don't know yet. Maybe Jan. :rofl

So today is three weeks since the fry were born! :teehee

To celebrate, I decided to upgrade their measuring spoon to a full teaspoon, and I also gave them a piece of wedding cake. :yikes

People, if you're doing fish things on the kitchen counter, finish your stuff BEFORE serving up dessert! :o:rofl I dropped it right in their little holding bowl. :doh11:

Uhhhh :peeka

Anyway!

And maybe you can see her wee finny fins.

After Myrtle's photoshoot I decided I'd finally get some kf Edna. She has some cute dots on her head. Of course right when I scooped her up, my phone decided the battery was too low to take any pictures. :rofl
