50 days old. They are eating blood worms, even the normal sized ones :D

Also, I think Tilty might turn out natural brown. That would be so awesome! In the photo with all four of them, you can compare Buttons' (bottom right) orange head with Tilty's (top left) brown color. Definitely a difference.

Tilty eating a blood worm, you can see the brown color already.

All four, left to right: Tilty, Trooper, Finny and on the bottom Buttons. Buttons' eyes aren't as button-y anymore.

Oooh that would be very pretty if Tilty turns out brown! I love how Trooper has a bloodworm half shoved in his mouth in that second picture! :rofl so cute!! Also, Finny is still my fave, he looks to be the fattest too! :heart

Thanks everyone! Finny is very funny (Ha ha) to watch when he swims. With the lack of tail fin, he moves his "end" around a lot to get enough boost when swimming. You can see that in the group pic how his "end" is all sideways.

The shadow of his "tail" in that picture also cracks me up. It's like WHO TOOK THE SCISSORS TO MY FISH???!! lol

I was advised to cull him, but am not going to. I certainly understand this advise coming from professional breeders, definitely. But since the missing tail is not giving him any trouble (as Kailey correctly pointed out - Finny is the fattest/largest one); he is just going to be my little deformed, funny pet fish. :angelstaf:

you know Fang, its probably a good thing that those 4 ate all the others. Given how attached to these ones that you are - imagine if you had 4 times as many that you had to find space for!

I think its great that finny is getting along so well.

Yep! It seems like that as soon as they reached a certain size (where larger pieces of food fit in their mouths and they started eating the cyanobacteria off the walls - those are almost 90% cleaned now by the way :D ) they began to grow even faster.

Day 56:

The fish have grown IMMENSELY since the last photo update. I re-sized the pics so the glass in which Finny is, is the same size in both pics. So you can really tell the difference.

They have grown so big. I love the fry color they have on now. It would be awesome if they can keep that golden color :)

I know, right? When I put the two pics of Finny in the glass together in photoshop, I was all :yikes

They look a bit more golden in the pics from the flash, but still. So far it looks like I'll have one natural brown or orange one and three calicos. Unless they change THAT much when they get older :)

Oh Dennis! LOL

Federica, they will stay with me. Somehow. LOL

Thinking about a temporary improvised patio pond. Luckily it rarely goes below freezing in South Carolina during winter.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate_of_South_Carolina

Please keep in mind this says "monthly NORMAL". So just the average. We had temps up to 104F / 40C on some days, and went down to 25F / -4C on others. But so I think that even if it goes down that cold in winter, if the pond / tub is deep enough, and the fish being single tails, there shouldn't be a problem. It will never even freeze over. In the worst case I'd toss a heater in there to keep the temperature just above freezing.

And in summer I'd provide a lot of shade for the fish, with a lot of water movement.

:)
