Oldest 4 weeks now, about 1.2 cm TL now & looking/acting like adults:


None of the second batch are dropping off yet *touch wood*, almost certain I wasn't feeding the first batch properly. I think I underestimated how large prey the fry could swallow, the second batch took vinegar eels within a day or two of being free-swimming, smaller microworms within 4-5 days and onto BBS at 7-8 days.

Had another spawn - CO2-incidentally when a thunderstorm happened.

EDIT: 5 weeks:

6.5 weeks, moving a few onto crushed pellet now. Theres a few Pseudomugil gertrudae fry mixed in now.



Not sure what to do with them to be honest, I might keep the largest 5 and find new homes for the rest.

Wow, they've grown a lot!

I would probably find new homes for most of them, too. There's simply too many to keep them all. Wink

Theres a local forum I post on where I could probably find some people interested. Haven't got anyone lined up yet though, don't think theres any hurry. I'd like to find people who know what they're doing to take them though, as it's not a common fish the more people who get them breeding the better. Worst case I can trade them in at a LFS, but I'd rather buy another tank and keep them if it comes to that!

I would buy a new tank even if you find somebody who knows what they are doing....

I can only fit so many tanks here. Laughing Definitely can't fit a large tank that a large school would deserve.

8 weeks, about 1.8-2 cm TL:



I'd say this is probably 'young adult' - about 1/3 to 1/2 the mass of my full adults. Going to try to move the largest out to a different tank within the next few days as they're getting quite big.

They are looking good, and I like seeing those full bellies. Maybe it's the perspective, but it looks like you have a pretty wide range of sizes. I think moving the big ones to another tank - like you are doing- will allow the smaller individuals catch up since they will not be having to compete with the larger and more aggressive feeders. Hopefully you can find someone worthy to sell them to.
