:bingo:

the mom is a lionhead? cool! it is weird that they all seem to have the dorsal fin! too bad! when do you think their eyes start to 'grow' if they are telescopes?

Shell,

Here's something I found:

When first hatched, the Telescope Goldfish has normal eyes that begin to bulge after about one month. It may take up to three months for the eyes to fully develop the protruding bulge that is so characteristic of this goldfish. The selection of a good specimen places much importance on the eyes. They should be large, protruding, and symmetrical.

Shell,

From what I've seen most young goldfish arrive at pet shops that are from 6 months to 12 months old which is when the fry will have turned color. Most breeders will sell/rehome fry once the color change has taken place.

Fry are 5 weeks old today :) :)

Sadly I am now down to 4 :( I lost the 2 smalles over night it seems :( But the 4 remaining are looking very good :) all over the tank eating like little piggies and poping as well :) Keeping my fingers crossed i do not lose anymore....considering I only started with 18 I don't think it's going to badly...

Here's some new pic's :)

congrats on the fry! quick question, the thermometer in the last picture, what kind is it? does it have a suction cup at the bottom?

It's a sinking thermometer Martha :) It's weighted on the bottom I guess stays put pretty well :) I got them at my local pet co mpany :)

Thanks everyone :)

The remaining 4 are looking pretty good I think as well :) one is a bit smaller than the other 3 but not as small as the one's I recently lost :(

Their coloring right now is like a very light copper & shimmery :) It's very pretty I think :)I'm looking forward to what they will become down the road a bit :) and I can see they're eye's have goldish rings around them and they do poke out a bit already :) So I am thinking they are going to take after the Daddy (Bubbles) ;)

Thanks again for following :)
