:) Oh they are adorable! :heart Babies are just tooooo cute! You must be so proud! :exactly

thanks vmlola :heart yeah they are just too cute and i am very proud i'm dying with curiousity though of who the daddy is :rofl man i can wait until my lionhead is much better i have lots of females and males but i'm afraid he may definitely hurt them with the breeding as he is much bigger by far then the females are and the other males

such a little cuties :heart . a question, how deep their tank should be?

fred the tank is now completely filled almost i tried a diy sponge filter but it was too strong a current so tomorrow i'm going to get a sponge filter hey if these guys are ranchu mix and have no dorsal fins as i dont see any so far i am going to be happy

oooh babies!! Too cute :heart If you can't see dorsals maybe the ranchu is the daddy after all. I hope they make it. I am sorry to say I lost all my fry at about this size :ignore but thes look very good Jillian, long straight bodies, healthy appetites and strong swimming. Way to go! :D

thanks trinket I am sorry that you lost all your fry at this age one of the fry has a curved back so i dunno if it is defect or not but i dont care either way i :heart them all equally if I only lived in japan and these guys daddy is the ranchu and they got bigger i'd of given you some as i know the breeding isnt over yet as my female looks bigger again and laid eggs a few days ago again but i let them eat them :( cruel thing to do but until i actually have the space once i get my 125 ga this week or early next week i will have to wait i am hoping that lionhead doesnt mess her up once he is out of qt and all better from his sickness as i know he is 7 inches long as i measured him tonight he would definitely put a hurting on her i have 4 males now and 3 females :o but i'm hoping that they all survive i was thinking about getting another large female lionhead to keep him company course after i qt her too but this is only after i get a way bigger tank

The first spray or batch is apparantly the strongest :) You might have to separate if you don't want more. Also , keep an eye on your female that sprayed the eggs because they can get very weak and prone to infection.

You got it, Fred - that is the only rule, actually. Jilian, provide a picture - it doesn't have to be a perfectly clear one, and post it here. As long as there is a fry somewhere in there. Voila, breeder award!

Interesting! Those 2 will make for some very individual looking babies. I wonder if they will have wens?

How are the 3 doing? And don't forget to PM koko with one of these photos to get your breeder medal :D

The medals take some time. Koko has a million things going on so it will take time but don't worry she won't forget.
