Bristlenose Fry

    I have a male BN and an albino female, she is yellow with red eyes. This is her second time laying eggs, the first time I wasn't aware she laid eggs. This time I was more focused on changes that were going on in the tank. I moved dad and eggs to a separate tank. The eggs have hatched and a few have gotten out. How old are they when they start getting color? All I can see is the yoke sack and transparent tails wiggling.

    Welcome to fishlore :)

    Give it a few days and you should start to see brown pigment. If the male has a recessive albino gene, 50% will be albino. :)

    I don't think he does. I have 18 that I was able to save from the last bunch. All are dark like him.

    Thanks, I will keep looking at them. It's amazing how fast they grow.
