Congrats Jillian, btw, I have lost some of my fry but thank god and especially d_golem who helped me with my questions of raising my fry, I have a few surviving...

It's a little difficult at the beginning but I'm sure you'll enjoy the experience...(I really do :) )

hiya devs i have 12 total that survived outta 16 that managed to hatch they are moving about their eye colors are no longer black some are more active then the others but they are still alive i dont think they like the liquid fry food so i'm going to try the frozen brine shrimp see if they like that

i also noticed the one fry has a weird looking spine kinda curved like a humped where as the other 3 have a more pronouned spine :hmm dunno if it is a defect or what i guess i will see it doesnt seem to bother this particular fry either swims like it is nothing

I think, if you can come with a pic, koko will give you a medal for breeding. I am not sure with the rule though.

i believe she said they have to be free swimming and eggs dont count i am definitely going to try and get pics of these guys they are so cute
