5 day old fry...

They are still little specks with eye's :) but I can now see they have food in they're little bellies :) def grazing on the rocks and surfaces :) not having much luck with the live baby brine shrimp :( but they love the hikari first bites :) :)

Here's some new pic's...again they are very tiny so you still may have to squint some ;)

Wow they are cute, how exciting!! I can't wait to see how they develop. Everyone's got fry lately, you can sure tell it's spring/summertime :)

I hope I have tele fry someday. I would totally want to be ruthless with culling though and keep only the "best" ones, but it would be hard. I just read in a Goldfish society article about a breeder who feeds his culls to his adult goldfish. Seems better than just wasting their lives by throwing them away if you ask me. And baby fish in the wild are eaten all the time anyways, so it seems like a slightly more natural way cull.

Day 6

I have been thinking lately about how to cull if I have to and I guess that would be the best way to do it :( I only started out ith a little more than a dozen eggs and today's count is at a dozen? So thanks for the info Sakura :)

I have the tank mostly bare bottom now except the filter it self, still no luck finding any sponge type but I guess this is working atm :) I was finally able to feed them some bbs and they were sooooo cute chasing them down ;) Here's a little video update..don't mine the silly hubby talking to the kitty's in the background,and it was taking at night so a little dark too sorry :(

WOW!! Fry are 1 Week old today :) :)

I still have at least a dozen fry in there,they are so hard to see I sit and watch them with magnifier in hand (LOL) I have noticed that besides seeing they're full stomachs, they're tails are now split in to two :) :)I did have to remove a dead one this am :( it was floating and the others were pecking at it :( I will try to get some new pic's up later today...

Thanks for looking :)

starting to look real cool! when do they stop having transparent bodies?

It is weird how they all swim near the bottom - I think only the 'bravest' dare to swim more freely :rofl

I'm not sure when they start to show any color but I am looking forward to it :)

I have some sad new's :( last night at lights out I found a dead baby at the bottom of the vase, and they will be coming out today!!!But I also found 2 more dead this am :( I'm hoping it's just a survival of the fittest thing, my water is good @ nitrite-0,ammonia-0,nitrate-0 ,and I am doing daily water changes (x2 sometimes)So I am now down to 15...

Thanks for following :)
