    Around 13 days old now and I'm guessing about a half an inch in length.
    The patterns are quite obvious now as well.

    Ohh boy.. she's holding eggs Again..
    I'm still letting the first batch of fry grow out.. and I have a spare 10 gallon tank that I could house these new ones but that's gonna be too many for me to take care of...
    Should I just let her spit them out in the community and let the others eat them? Or will some get away and continue to grow?

    Few distinguishable markings on them.
    A few have black stripes across their eyes really strange considering the parents don't have a stripe on their eyes

    Anything can happen with hybrids.

    A few of the male peacock juvies, very slight hints of color showing in most of them.
    These were the only ones that would stay still long enough for me to get a pic lol.
    There's one that's almost white too.
